Helping hand for green businesses in the North West
The Northwest Regional Development Agency (NWDA) has recently approved funding for phase two of a recycling and waste technology project, based in the North West.
┬ú7m is being invested into the expansion of the scheme, which is set to establish the region as a centre of excellence for recycling and sustainability.
According to the NWDA, the project will continue to offer technical advice, partnership working and referrals, as well as create 300 jobs, safeguard a further 940 jobs, add ┬ú25.5 million to the value of the sector and prevent 570,000 tonnes of waste from being made into landfill across the region.
Steven Broomhead, Chief Executive at the NWDA, said:
“Sustainable consumption and production is one of the biggest challenges facing businesses today, particularly throughout this difficult economic period. Businesses that take the green agendas seriously now will be one step ahead in the future and better prepared for sustainable economic success.
“By switching to greener waste-related operations and increasing the need for renewable energy, pollution control and energy efficiency, the Northwest will be in a strong position to reap the rewards of an industry that will be worth in excess of ┬ú30 billion over the next 10 years.”
