What will 10 business do with a £3000 eco-boost?

All Kingston based, micro and small sized businesses were invited to apply to lead a pilot project, which would give 10 local enterprises the opportunity to complete free environmental audits.

Each business used the Green Mark framework to assess their environmental performance and in doing so, identify opportunities for improvement. They then were able to make an application for funding from Kingston Council, to help them implement positive changes to their businesses, which drove efficiencies and reduced costs.

The aim of this project is to show how every business can make a difference, and by assessing their operations and creating workable action plans, they can establish simple processes that push for continuous improvement.

This smart initiative is the result of a collaborative effort between Kingston Council and Green Mark, whereby these lucky companies are able to achieve Green Mark Accreditation, plus funding between £2000 to £3000 per business, to help realise projects which will deliver more sustainable operations.
