Polar Bear on IceThe British Chambers of Commerce has launched its climate change charter committing itself and the Chamber network to placing climate change at the heart of its operations.

Maresa Molloy, Liverpool Chamber’s Head of Policy and Information explained: “Liverpool Chamber has signed the Charter and we urge all our members to make the pledge. The Charter aims to develop a common understanding over the nature of the climate change challenge and the responsibilities of both Government and business in meeting this challenge.”

The Charter aims to provide advice and assistance on reducing energy usage and mitigating the effects of climate change. It will encourage businesses to adopt practices to reduce carbon emissions, spread the messages of energy efficiency.

Maresa continued: “Liverpool Chamber is taking the lead role in promoting responsible business. It is vital that the threat of climate change is taken seriously. The Charter will be used to lobby Government to provide support and encouragement to the business community in this vital area. It will also help businesses to educate their employees to be aware of the company’s social and environmental responsibility.”

The website also contains information from the Carbon Trust, Envirowise, the Energy Saving Trust and the Environment Agency along with a carbon footprint calculator and a range of money saving tips. Log on to www.theclimatechangecharter.co.uk
