Green Business Dorset E Magazine



A Vital Tool for Dorset Keeps Environmental Management in Check and Running Costs Down

A vital new tool is available for private business, public sector and organisations in Dorset.  In support of environmental management, and encouraging a buy local culture, Green Business Dorset is a dynamic package of e.magazine, e.newsletter and events programme aimed at providing an educational resource and environmental hub for the County.

Brought to Dorset by Make it Happen PR, the resource is the brainchild of owner and Editor Lynda Sparks:  “Having worked in the green sector for four years – and as Vice Chair of the B2B Green Knowledge Network, I began to investigate the wealth of green products, services and expertise right here in Dorset.  When it comes to environmental management and good business practice companies can often feel overwhelmed and unaware of the help that is available right here in the County they operate in.  It struck me a central knowledge point would be the ideal solution – a form of Environmental Dating Agency if you like, highlighting the people and solutions and matching them with businesses with a need.”

Whether through legislation, customer demand, tendering for new business, ISO14001, ESOS, ISO50001 or attracting the right staff – no organisation can afford to ignore the environmental impact of their operation.  “The idea of Green Business Dorset is to demonstrate a step by step – and therefore more affordable and manageable approach,” Lynda explains. “Most importantly, we don’t want Dorset businesses to get caught out – or lose business to their competitor, especially when it is avoidable. The power of the green pound is rising and our goal is to keep as much of that spend in the county as possible.
