Cheltenham Low Carbon Partnership is launching a new, online toolkit for businesses, designed to help them get their staff involved in reducing carbon emissions and greening the business.

The Big Green Bundle toolkit is packed with ideas and materials and utilises research undertaken by the Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (Defra) about the differing views people have about the environment, to help businesses to choose effective initiatives.  

A launch event to showcase the Big Green Bundle is being held at Hesters Way Community Resource Centre on Wednesday 21 March at 10.00am and local businesses are invited to attend to find out more about the toolkit, which will be a free resource.

For further information contact Gill Morris at Cheltenham Borough Council on 01242 264229,

For press enquiries contact: Nicola Collins, communications team leader, telephone 01242 775050 or email
