About The Green Business Partnership
New financial year, new name! The Green Business Partnership (formed in April 2010) was formerly known as the Business Environment Partnership (BEP), which was established in 1998 to provide free and subsidised assistance with environmental management to small to medium sized businesses throughout Scotland.
Although our name has changed, our services remain the same. We offer a range of core services, the principal aim of which is to make the Scottish economy more competitive by allowing companies to realise:
- cost savings through waste management, energy efficiency, reduced effluent production, reduced water and raw material consumption, etc.
- reduced risks through compliance with environmental legislation
- improved competitive advantage through the development of new products and services; and by enabling companies to operate in supply chains that demand specific environmental credentials, e.g. ISO14001 and the Green Tourism Business Scheme
