NEEBS can help organisations to identify potential cost savings through waste minimisation and savings on energy and fuel.
The NEEBS programme works through experienced consultants visiting businesses to identify their key environmental impact, potential savings through waste minimisation and highlighting any weaknesses or gaps a business faces to tackle environmental issues - for example, lack of environmental awareness among employees.
NEEBS is a Business Link project, managed by the Environmental Industries Federation (EIF), and funded through One NorthEast single programme monies.
The Environmental Industries Federation (EIF), the region's environment business cluster, administers NEEBS on behalf of Business Link Tyne and Wear where Guy Bashford has just been appointed as project manager.
Guy, a former environmental officer with Sara Lee in Slough - manufacturers of household toiletries - has made the move North to join EIF and lead the NEEBS project.
In addition to reducing businesses' impact on the environment and improving their efficiency, Guy and the team at EIF also hope NEEBS will help firms avoid falling foul of environmental legislation.
