The Director of CBI Scotland, Iain McMillan, has today called on Scotland's businesses to improve their environmental performance
Speaking at the Annual Awards of the Vision in Business for the Environment of Scotland, (VIBES) Mr McMillan said,
"As the Director of CBI Scotland, I travel around Scotland meeting with people from all kinds of businesses. I believe that we are genuinely blessed with many innovative and successful companies, both domestic and international, many of whom are world class leaders in their field.
"Our VIBES winners have demonstrated that despite the continued economic downturn, there are business opportunities to be had and increased profitability to be gained through environmental innovation.
"But we need to get better and encourage even more businesses to understand that environmental improvements make good business sense. Scottish companies need to ingrain good environmental practice into the very fabric their operations.
"That's good for the businesses themselves and good for Scotland. CBI Scotland is proud to support the VIBES Awards to help to spread that message."
