Businesses urged to take up expert advice and support
Businesses are being urged to attend a briefing which provides information on changes to environmental legislation and rules on business standards.
The breakfast briefing at South Cheshire College, at 8am on March 28, will include top tips to help businesses avoid costly fines for failing to meet key legal requirements.
With Brexit presenting businesses with a host of opportunities and challenges, the event will help companies ensure they remain competitive and comply with important changes to the ISO 9001 and 14001 standards demanded by customers for quality and environmental management.
As well as the free-to-attend event, businesses can receive free business support before the end of March to help identify energy-saving and other resource-reducing opportunities. Cheshire East companies who have benefited in the past through similar programmes include Holmes Chapel-based Fine Décor, who saved more than £500,000 and Nantwich-based haulage company GA Newsome, who saved £81,000.
The council’s environmental business support programme is managed by its arms-length Skills and Growth Company in partnership with Groundwork Cheshire.
Councillor George Hayes, chairman of the Skills and Growth Company, said: “For any business holding quality or environmental ISO standards, this is a ‘must attend’ event. For others, – who feel improvements in their environment efficiency could not only help them save thousands of pounds but also give them a real business edge – I urge them to attend and take advantage of our free support.”
