In the current economic climate and cost-of-living crisis, the connection between decarbonisation and economic resilience/growth has never been so strong. Payback times for low carbon solutions have been dramatically reduced by rising energy prices, increasing demand in supply chains and markets.
Many businesses are unsure what their path to net-zero could look like. Our programmes aim to provide end-to-end support, from engagement and specialist advice to financial support to take action.
The climate and ecological emergency is also an opportunity to reshape and grow our region’s economy. With the right support, local businesses can develop and export low carbon products and services and transform the way they operate.
The Low Carbon Business Support team are running events to offer advice and support for small and medium businesses in the region. Upcoming events for the end of this year include two webinars, where members of our team will be discussing the services we offer, as well as showcasing stories from businesses who have benefitted from our advice and grants.
We will also be heading out and about to Midsomer Norton’s High Street, where businesses will be able to book a survey with one of our advisors or drop in for a coffee and a chat about your energy bills.
Free, impartial support for small and medium sized enterprises to find ways to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions and energy costs.
Funding for SMEs to make energy savings and carbon reduction improvements to their buildings and operations.
Whatever stage your business is at, the Growth Hub are on hand to help you find the right support to help you navigate your green journey. The Growth Hub Green Business Support pillar outlines eight steps, from building your sustainability plan, measuring your current green credentials through to relevant events and connections to help you along the way.
