Business in The Community launched its new Connections Plus programme, sponsored by Electric Ireland.

It's open to small businesses with fewer than 50 employees in all sectors across Northern Ireland and aims to ensure that businesses across Northern Ireland have sustainability and responsibility firmly on their agenda.

"Over the past three years, with the incredible support of Electric Ireland, we have delivered our Connections small business programme across Northern Ireland," Connections Plus programme manager Heather Major said. "Since 2009, we've been able to support over 1,100 businesses. The best practice and guidance provided has made a real difference to these small firms."
