ENWORKS has a vision of an improved environment and economy for the North West of England, achieved through the engagement of businesses of all sizes and sectors in environmentally sustainable business practice.
Our internationally recognised, award-winning business support has made ENWORKS a leading authority on environmental business issues. We are already helping thousands of businesses to make the transition to a low-carbon economy.
ENWORKS was established as a positive response to the challenges posed by climate change, resource scarcity and security of supply. We help businesses to convert environmental pressures into competitive advantages by improving their resource efficiency and, in doing so, we are saving them millions of pounds each year.
This is achieved through a combination of practical advice, awareness-raising activities, tailored on-site support, plus training, all focused on creating cultural change throughout the entire business workforce.
Our current three-year programme of support (2010-13) has been funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and the UK Government's Single Programme funds, which have been managed by the Northwest Regional Development Agency (NWDA) and the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS).
"What impresses me most about projects such as ENWORKS is they truly are becoming the change that's needed in the world."
Al Gore, former US Vice President (2007)
"ENWORKS is one hell of a story! This is the sort of stuff that makes me feel amazingly inspired. It’s the stuff of incremental impact reduction, in a way that's delivering real value for wealth creators, for shareholders, for businesses, for communities and for the environment. It's a tremendous achievement."
Sir Jonathon Porritt CBE, co-founder of Forum for the Future (2010)
