Business sustainability support available

Jack Colding the sustainability expert is the contact for decarbonisation support

Update: New applications to the Business Sustainability grant programme have now been paused. The support programme is still live and accepting applications.

The grants programme has been very popular since its launch in September 2023.  Over £200,000 has been approved for various projects, including the installation of LED lighting, waste management systems, solar panels and electric vehicle chargers.  

We believe we have now received sufficient applications to allocate the remainder of the budget.  The programme has therefore been paused to give us time to review the grant requests we have so far.  

We thank everyone who has applied and worked with us to date. Decarbonisation support and specialist advice can still be obtained via the Business Sustainability support programme outlined below.

Trusted specialist advice

Advice will be provided on a range of topics, including reducing environmental impact, adapting to a changing climate, reducing energy bills, and making resources go further, all of which can save a business money. The advice will be provided through in-house advisors and specialist consultancy support. 

Sustainability audits

Sustainability audits will provide businesses with a free in-depth assessment of business operations, giving businesses a full picture of their current environmental impact and carbon footprint.
