Business doing its best for the environment
For the the past two years the annual Copeland Pride Awards for celebrating business achievements in Copeland has included an environmental category.
This is our green award, for the business that goes the extra mile in what it delivers and ensuring that the environment is at the heart of everything it does. This might mean a business that is reducing its carbon footprint, offers environmentally friendly products or something even more radical.
Copeland Coastal Partnership
On 30 June 2011 Copeland Borough Council launched a new Coastal Partnership. The Copeland Coastal Partnership brings together a range of organisations that have an interest in promoting and enhancing the coast to encourage more people to enjoy the benefits of what is on offer.
