THE CARBON TRUST has launched the Green Business Directory to help businesses source reliable suppliers of energy efficient and low carbon technologies.
The directory comes off the back of a recent survey commissioned by the Carbon Trust that showed that while 96% of businesses questioned considered energy efficiency to be high priority when purchasing or upgrading equipment only 51% of businesses are sufficiently satisfied by manufacturers’ energy efficiency claims.
Companies listed on the Green Business Directory will be independently assesses and accredited by the Carbon Trust Accredited Supplier Scheme, to ensure they fit key criteria that verify energy efficiency claims.
Hugh Jones, Managing Director of Business Advice at the Carbon Trust, commented: "The Green Business Directory will make it easy for organisations to find independently accredited suppliers who have demonstrated their success in delivering sustainable, low carbon solutions in what is a crowded and fast-growing market."
