Midlothian Businesses Encouraged to Sign Midlothian Business Green Pledge
Businesses in Midlothian are encouraged to sign a new Midlothian Business Green Pledge designed to support businesses in their endeavours to be environmentally friendly.
The newly launched Carbon Charter and Green Pledge are designed to support businesses in the transition to being a green business, demonstrating their commitment to the Scottish Government and Midlothian Council’s Net Zero ambitions.
The Midlothian Business Carbon Charter
As we launch the Midlothian Business Carbon Charter we will be showcasing some of the work that Midlothian is doing to support the environment. The Carbon charter highlights the work Midlothian Council is doing to support the environment and the support available to businesses, from a variety of sources, to help them on their way to being an environmentally aware and friendly business.
The Midlothian Business Green Pledge
To compliment the Carbon Charter a Midlothian Business Green Pledge has been developed. Businesses are encouraged to sign the pledge to show their commitment to improving their environmental practices, understanding the impact they have and creating a green action plan, all with support from Business Gateway Midlothian advisers. These small steps can have a big impact on your business, the environment and your customers and with an ever increasing focus on climate change and the environment, now is the time to make your promise to become a greener, more sustainable business.
From more rainfall to spells of drought and increases in global temperatures, plastics washing up on beaches and harming wildlife to reliance on natural resources such as oil, we are all seeing the impact of our actions on the planet. Businesses, and more importantly your consumers, are becoming more environmentally aware and understanding that they have a role to play in protecting the planet and our futures.
Midlothian council is no different and, in line with Midlothian Council’s Net Zero Carbon Strategy 2030, the new Midlothian Business Carbon Charter and Green Pledge are now live. Providing top tips, actions and support to businesses, signing the Midlothian Business Green Pledge shows your business’s dedication to reducing your impact on the environment.
