A survey commissioned by an environmental charity claims that around 85 per cent of local authorities feel they are failing to encourage companies to improve their environmental performance, reports the Financial Times (p9).

The survey, commissioned by Groundwork, reported that 91 per cent of local authorities wanted more money from central government for environmental initiatives.

The survey found that the methods favoured by around 70 per cent of local authorities, such as business clubs, seminars and leaflets, were supported by 35 per cent or less of the business community.
