Colman's of Norwich will open its doors next week (27 June) to
other East Anglian businesses, to showcase just how
environmentally-friendly it is.
Six companies, including Thetford-based Jeyes and food company, Geest, from Spalding, will spend the day touring the site and hearing how Colman's introduced new working practices to minimise their environmental liabilities.
The participating companies and funders form part of a University of East Anglia (UEA) outreach initiative to promote partnerships to achieve environmental improvements in industry.
"Improved environmental performance nearly always means improved economic performance, and this training programme aims to provide companies with all the legal information and practical solutions they need to introduce good environmental practices into their day-to-day activities," said Project Manager, Nina Cunningham.
The Environmental Management System Club was launched in March by Great Yarmouth MP, Tony Wright. The three year project aims to help up to 30 companies in the region, the Club approach to Environmental Management Systems will then be launched nationwide.
