Cumbrian businesses are being urged to take action on climate change.

A workshop, to be held later this month by Eco-Innovation Cumbria will ask firms to consider the impact of their supply chain on climate change.

Known as life cycle thinking, it aims to encourage businesses to reduce, reuse and recycle.

Glyn Griffiths, senior project officer for Eco-Innovation Cumbria, said: “We want to provide a tool for companies to identify and reduce the resources they use to manufacture products or provide services that are sold to customers.

“Life Cycle Thinking provides a step by step approach to identify key areas for improvement. The approach will encourage working with your supply chain to reduce waste, helping to reduce CO2, with positive impacts on profit along with climate change.”

The event, at the Stonecross Manor Hotel in Kendal on March 26, is free to small and medium size companies in Cumbria. Practical workshops, delivered by the University of Central Lancashire, will be matched with networking opportunities.
