With energy bills and operating costs on the rise, it's becoming more expensive than ever to produce carbon emissions. 

Assess your energy usage, review where you source your energy from and install energy efficiency measures, and the average small-to-medium- sized enterprise could reduce energy bills by 18-25% and reduce their overall carbon footprint.

The Net Zero Business Grant provides financial assistance of up to 50% grant support (up to £10,000 per grant) to support changes to business premises and operations, for example, a move to low carbon heating systems, solar-powered energy or other measures to reduce your carbon footprint.
