Green Dragon programme to support social enterprises
Social enterprises in Bridgend can benefit from a free programme that will establish environmental management systems and develop their businesses using the Green Dragon Environmental Standard.
Groundwork, in partnership with the Wales Co-operative Centre’s Social Enterprise Support Project, has been awarded a contract to deliver level one and level two of the Green Dragon Environmental Standard to social enterprises across Wales.
The Green Dragon Environmental Standard is a stepped system comprising of five levels of achievement, which provides the framework to make cost savings, comply with legislation, improve environmental performance and increase competitiveness
The programme is free up to level two of Green Dragon for qualifying social enterprises and offers the benefits of financial savings and improved environmental performance. The project is part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund through the European Union’s Convergence programme which is administered by the Welsh Government.
