Environmental guidance for your business in Northern Ireland & Scotland
The popular Love Food Hate Waste workshops are once again open for bookings. You can help your staff save around £460 a year, as well as adopt a greener, healthier lifestyle, by running one of these free sessions at your premises.
Delivered by Energy Saving Trust on behalf of Zero Waste Scotland, these Scottish Government-funded workshops can empower staff to:
• Save an average of £460 a year per household through reducing food waste
• Play their part in reducing the impact of waste and creating a greener Scotland
• Reduce food waste at work as they become more attuned to sustainable behaviour at home.
Delivered by expert trainers across Scotland, workshops are free of charge and impartial.
To find out more or book, go to energysavingtrust.org.uk/love-food-hate-waste-workshops , or email Energy Saving Trust’s employee engagement team at EmployeeEngagement@est.org.uk.
Workshops run until the end of September 2018 and funding is limited – so book today.
The Northern Ireland Environment Agency has published a short guide to the duty of care responsibilities including advice and information for waste producers, carriers and those accepting, storing and treating waste.
Any person intending to alter the use or management of areas of uncultivated or semi-natural land must obtain prior approval from the Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs (DAERA).
