BUSINESSES of all sizes and industries are being invited to take part in an “ambitious” survey to better understand their carbon footprints.

The Big Dorset Business Survey has been created by Litter Free Dorset to help Dorset businesses find efficient and cost-effective ways to lessen their impact on the environment, cut their carbon footprint and reduce their waste output.

Taking a few minutes to complete, responses to the survey will enable the environmental campaign group to “get the real picture of what is happening with waste, recycling, packaging, and more, so we can support them in the future”.

Organisers have also teamed up with The Embroidery Barn to offer a prize draw. Every business that completes the survey and submits their details will be entered into the draw to win a set of 10 custom embroidered or printed organic cotton t-shirts for their business.

If you have your own business in any part of Dorset, you are encouraged to visit for more information.
