Businesses and industry in the Bradford District emit 1.23million tonnes of greenhouse gases each year. To reduce the affects of climate change it is important for businesses to cut their emissions and their impact on the environment.
Businesses can also make financial saving by cutting costs by reducing the resources used – like water, energy and raw materials – and reusing or recycling more waste.
