Scotland plans to make 2012 the year of wind power
Businesses in Scotland have called for the country to seize the opportunity to make 2012 the year of wind power it was announced today (January 3).

Top companies in the country have also backed a new label promoting products and services made using wind power

Aberdeenshire-based ice-cream manufacturer, Mackie's of Scotland, Midlothian-based leaflet and posters distributors, EAE Ltd and Renfrewshire-based Scotland-wide retailer M&Co joined environmental group WWF Scotland in urging more companies to follow their lead and switch to using wind energy to produce their products or provide their services.

According to Scotland's WWF Scottish firms stand to benefit commercially from tapping into wind power.

The leading companies also threw their weight behind a global consumer label which identifies products and companies made with wind energy and called for firms to consider applying.

Backed by WWF, the WindMade label is dedicated to increasing corporate investments in wind power by informing consumers about companies' use of wind energy, and increasing demand for products that embrace this clean and renewable energy source.
