Be aware of the environmental issues
that may affect your business.

Are you ozone friendly?

If your business uses refrigeration or air conditioning equipment, fire fighting equipment or solvents for cleaning.

Check to see if they contain ozone depleting substances, ie CFC's, HCFC's or halons. Your equipment supplier should be able to help.

You will be affected by legislation controlling or banning these substances. A series of free DTI leaflets is available.

Consult:

DTI leaflets in series 'Advice on Alternatives and Guidelines for Users' (Don't read it in public-people will think you're a junky) contact 020 72155830 or 020 72151018. Environment and Energy Helpline 0800 585 794. In Scotland apply to Scottish Environment Protection Agency on 01786 457700.

Waste.

If your business produces, imports, exports, stores, transports, treats, disposes of or recovers waste.

Waste regulations apply.
