Here you can find out how to make your business greener.

All businesses, regardless of size or sector, can benefit from reducing their environmental impact. 

The council encourages businesses in Copeland to think about improving the environmental performance of their businesses through the implementation of low carbon measures e.g. better insulation, energy efficient heating and lighting, waste and water reduction.  Even the simplest energy efficient measures like switching off lights and equipment when they aren’t needed makes a real difference.

Businesses in Copeland are already benefiting from substantial cost savings and improving their productivity through resource efficiency. This is often achieved with little or no financial investment and is celebrated at the annual Copeland Pride Awards in the category for the award for the business doing its best for the environment.

Improving your resource efficiency will bring a number of benefits to your business including:

• Cutting costs
• Increasing productivity
• Reducing impact on the environment
• Improving business reputation

Cumbria Business Environment Network (CBEN) provides free environmental help, advice and support to all Copeland based businesses.

Information is also available from Envirolink Northwest and the Carbon Trust.
