The workshops aim to help companies get through the maze of how to put in place an Environmental Management System. Each lasts 4-6 hours and covers savings and costs, standards, environmental policy and technologies that increase environmental performance and competitiveness. Enterprise Europe Network are targeting companies from the metal working sector (any company that uses some metals in their activities and produce waste metal). However, the workshops are applicable to any business with the focus of some of the presentation on the metal industry. So those who are not in this sector but interested in the workshops, should get in touch. (See external link) EISC Ltd – Enterprise Europe Network is a business support organisation partly financed by the European Commission DG Enterprise to help small and medium sized businesses make the most of EU opportunities. They are based in Southampton and most of their services are free to businesses if they qualify under the Enterprise Europe network activities.
