KIRKLEES businesses are being invited to take a stroll down the greenest street in Britain.
Environmental advice group Envirowise has organised a virtual tour, known as Green Street, to help businesses across Yorkshire identify resource efficiency hot spots and cost saving opportunities by exploring an animated world on the web.
Business owners visiting www.envirowise.gov.uk/ greenstreet can find the Cost Cutters Arms, the Verte Restaurant, the Green Leaves Hotel, the Water Tower office block and the Efficient Engineering Company to get simple advice on practical environmental measures.
Points of interest along the virtual tour are supported by quick links to useful publications offering further free advice on tackling common resource efficiency hot spots, including ways to combat waste and practical tips for reducing water consumption and energy use.
Elin Crebbin, Envirowise regional manager for Yorkshire and the Humber, said research showed that businesses believe that using fewer raw materials, generating less waste and placing a greater emphasis on energy efficiency are all likely legacies of the recent recession.
