Businesses are sharing their expertise to help companies in Lichfield and Burntwood save money and cut carbon emissions.
The initiative is being organised by the Staffordshire Business Environment Network (SBEN).
Cllr Simon Tagg, Staffordshire County Council’s cabinet member for environment, infrastructure and climate change, said green innovation had already seen local businesses saving 1,656 tonnes of carbon since 2017.
“SBEN does great practical work and is currently offering free membership so businesses of any size in Staffordshire can get valuable practical advice and support to help them go green and prosper at the same time.
“Every small step we take makes a big difference and will get us closer to achieving net-zero by 2050.”Cllr Simon Tagg, Staffordshire County Council
Examples include a pub that has removed LPG gas from its kitchen and replaced all equipment to be run on electric renewable energy, as well as installing an electric vehicle charging point.
Other businesses showcasing the changes they have made include an insulated packaging company which is using sheep wool to protect pharmaceutical products being shipped internationally.
SBEN is offering free membership for local companies. For more details visit sben.co.uk.
