Lots of the businesses in our community area are already signed up to our Carbon Neutral 2050 campaign.
If you are a local business and have not yet done so, we encourage you to sign and to display one of our attractive Carbon Neutral 2050 stickers. We’d really love to hear from you to tell us what you are already doing and how you plan to save carbon emissions at your business.
We can offer services such as thermal imaging to help you on your way.
This is what some of the local businesses are doing:
- A B&B encourages its guests to use their car as little as possible while in the area and finds the Active Travel Map useful for this. Other B&Bs use the CFB 2050 guidelines to help them with their everyday activities and one has installed an electric car charging point
- A town centre retailer needs its lights on all day so is gradually changing over to LED bulbs and is already noticing a big difference in the energy bills.
- Arestaurant looked closely at its energy bills and changed its toilet lights to low energy bulbs and made sure cooker burners were not left on unnecessarily; it made a big difference to their bills!
- A shop has a large selection of goods from toiletries to oats with which you can refill your own containers
