Celebration of “green” success
Businesses are invited to join in a celebration of eco achievements at the annual national Investors in the Environment (iiE) in Peterborough. The event will bring together existing members and non-members of the iiE green accreditation scheme. It will be held at Peterborough’s Kingsgate Conference Centre on February 21 at 5.30pm. April Sotomayor, business support officer at iiE, said: “For businesses that are looking to improve their eco credentials and are interested in becoming an iiE member, the awards are a great opportunity to hear first-hand from current members about their green achievements through networking and testimonials.” To secure the iiE accreditation businesses must achieve a minimum two per cent improvement in resource efficiency. Other criteria include having a recycling system in place, adopting a travel plan, calculating carbon footprint and setting targets for carbon reduction. iiE member businesses can secure bronze, silver or the highest level of green accreditation.
