SMEs can have disproportionately big feet in terms of their carbon footprint. This is the message being delivered at a free seminar for Glasgow businesses delivered by Barr Construction.

The Paisley-based construction firm currently leading the redevelopment of Kelvin Hall is hosting a Carbon Footprint seminar on Friday 16th January at 10am at Kelvin Hall where opportunities for organisations to save money are not forgotten in the imperative to save the planet.

Glasgow businesses are invited to the 90 minute presentation which will provide a greater understanding of the carbon footprint concept and the importance of greenhouse gas emissions associated to different activities.

The seminar will focus on measuring and reporting techniques as well as identifying operational and corporate boundaries set up by current UK legislation. Attendees will also receive hints and tips on how to introduce carbon footprint reducing methods to be implemented within their businesses.

Main contractor Barr Construction is currently on site working on the first phase of the £60 million renovation of Glasgow’s historic Kelvin Hall. The much-loved city landmark is undergoing a full transformation to create a unique community cultural hub.The new facility will house community and cultural services from Glasgow Museums, Glasgow Sport, the National Library of Scotland and Glasgow University.
