The Zero Waste Initiative (ZWIN) is offering free training sessions to businesses in the borough who want to make improvements but don't know where to start.

One employee from each business will be trained to allow them to carry out a green assessment of their business premises, covering energy efficiency, water usage and waste reduction.

ZWIN is a Lottery funded project launched by the Richmond Environmental Information Centre and Richmond Council's Eco Action. It recently won joint first prize at the Local Authority Business and Environment Links Award Scheme (LABEL 21).
