    ENWORKS is an environmental support service for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises in the North West of England, offering training and advice in managing environmental risk, energy and water efficiency, improving waste management, and much more. The project runs a freely accessible Online Resource Efficiency Toolkit to help managers understand, prioritise, track and assess their environmental improvements and savings. ENWORKS has so far helped North West SMEs to identify GBP 79 (Euro 95) million of annual cost savings through resource efficiency, GBP13 (Euro15) million of which have been implemented so far. These improvements have saved over 47 000 tonnes of CO2 emissions, 413 000 m3 of water and 9 300 tonnes of materials. In addition, the environmental improvements have created or safeguarded over 960 jobs, as well as over GBP113 (Euro136) million worth of sales.

    The competition is now open for the RegioStars 2014 Awards. The deadline for applications is 19 April 2013.
