Environmental advice online

1 July 04

A free website has been launched by UK environmental regulators to help small businesses understand their environmental obligations and perform them better

UK environmental regulators have joined forces to launch a free website – www.netregs.gov.uk – to help small businesses understand their environmental obligations and improve their environmental performance. The site contains clear, authoritative guidance on the regulations governing a wide range of industry sectors, information on forthcoming legislation and good practice advice that can help businesses save money and become more competitive.

Law firms are being urged to recommend NetRegs to their small business customers and also to check their own environmental responsibilities on the website. The newly launched guidelines for office-based businesses offer advice on the environmental regulations affecting their activities and information on ways to minimise their impact on the environment.
