Clean Up Britain recognises that businesses face increasing scrutiny to anticipate and react to the environmental impacts of operating.
It’s not only our natural environment that’s at stake. The media are becoming increasingly vocal about companies not doing their fair share. This risks eroding consumer confidence.
We want to support businesses to do the right thing whilst balancing commercial pressures with the reputational and potential regulatory cost of not acting.
