Your business and the environment

Increasingly, even small and medium-sized businesses have to comply with a range of legal obligations aimed at reducing pressure on the environment. This chapter looks briefly at how your business may be affected by the main requirements concerning waste disposal and the efficient use of resources. While complying with these rules may seem onerous, bear in mind that taking steps to limit your waste and use resources more effectively may also save your business money.

You can get more information about your waste responsibilities from the Business Link Helpline* (or equivalent organisations) and the government web site www.gov.uk/browse/business/waste-environment and NetRegs*.
