Business in the Community (BITC) has launched its 2019 Environmental Benchmarking Survey.

It recognises the efforts by Northern Ireland organisations to minimise environmental impact and manage their resources.

The annual survey sponsored by poultry giant Moy Park and supported by the Northern Ireland Environment Agency (NIEA).

Last year 101 organisations took part, with 24 increasing their score by showing action to improve the environment.

Programme manager Keelin McCone said: "Since its inception in 1998, the survey has played a key part in helping to drive environmental improvement.

"It provides a platform for organisations to benchmark their environmental performance with others and identify areas where they need to take action."

To take part, go to www.bitcni.org.uk/NIEBS.
