Calling all Shropshire SMEs – Free Support in Cutting Carbon

De-Carbonising Shropshire’s Business Supply Chains as Fully Funded Support is Available.

The Shropshire based Clean Tech Business Group Ltd has won a contract with Shropshire Council, funded by Levelling Up Funds. This will provide in-depth and long term support to 25 businesses in the Shropshire Council area, in measuring and cutting carbon.

Businesses that address the Net Zero and Sustainability agendas enjoy many advantages:

  • They have lower costs
  • They are seen as progressive
  • They have a significant marketing advantage
  • They have better staff recruitment and retention
  • They enjoy stronger customer loyalty and reduced price pressures
  • They are more valuable at the point of a trade sale

Carbon reporting is increasingly being mandated by public sector and corporate buyers, as a ‘pass/fail’ requirement when tendering.

The support will be free-of-charge, as the project is funded by the UK Government through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund.

Nine man-days of support are available, spread over up to 12 months, to measure carbon emissions, develop a Net Zero strategy, and, crucially, to deliver carbon reductions.

Clean Tech Business Group Ltd will support the cutting all areas of emission, but with a focus on the Supply Chain. These are typically the largest element of a business’s overall emission, and always the hardest to abate.

The project is all about delivering carbon reductions, not solely reporting.

This is the opportunity for forward thinking, ambitious and progressive business owners to be, and be seen as, true business leaders in the County, and beyond.

*Eligible businesses must be SMEs in the Shropshire Council area*
