What is Green365?
Being environmentally friendly isn't something that we feel should be left to scientists or eco-conscious homeowners. It should be something that is a part of every businesses operations, mission statement and culture, whether they are large or small. Our Green365 campaign aims to encourage businesses to become more eco-friendly and raise awareness of the UK's climate change targets of 80% by 2050. Everybody needs to do their bit when it comes to tackling climate change, and the benefit for small businesses in becoming more eco-friendly stretch far beyond just saving the planet (Which is quite the incentive as it is), and can actually result in saving you a lot of time, money and increasing your positive brand image all in one swoop.
