Thank you for the
time that you spent talking to us at the recent LHA show, it was very
useful to us to get feedback on what other businesses view as the key
issues affecting them at present.
CGBF was launched a
little over one year ago and we have much to celebrate – growing
membership across Cumbria, successful campaigns and seminars, improved
business support, a dynamic website and a member’s forum for sharing
best practice, exchanging information and building networks.
CGBF really is your
forum – your voice. We have established excellent working relations with
all the key service providers and policy-makers in Cumbria and actively
campaign for better environmental facilities for the business community
across the County.
We have achieved
much in our first year but there is so much more to do. The threat of
global warming and climate change is very real and we need to do more to
tackle those environmental issues that impact on your business
performance. Through the combined strength of our members, CGBF will
continue campaigning for green business solutions that protect the
environment and ensures sustainable growth in Cumbria, for the long
