Business Improvements Through Environmental Solutions
Designco have taken steps to enhance their sustainability and promote their long-term competitiveness.
Representatives from 10 companies across the city including designco have completed the award-winning BITES (Business Improvements Through Environmental Solutions) programme, which is funded by Belfast City Council with support from the European Regional Development Fund.
The one-year programme looked at environmental management and resource efficiency in the workplace with participants learning how to identify savings to be made in purchasing, transport, energy and water costs.
Not only did we enjoy taking part of the programme as a result we have successfully managed to divert 80% of our waste from landfill as well as identifying a lot of energy savings!! We would recommend this course to any SME’s.
