START2ACT programme for young SMEs and startups

The Carbon Trust’s START2ACT programme offers free energy efficiency training and mentoring for start-ups and young SMEs by offering breakfast events, on-site energy efficiency training and energy efficiency mentoring. This programme is operating in 9 European countries and funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme. SWM member, the Carbon Trust, is implementing it in the UK. From April 2017, an open-access interactive online platform will be launched with a variety of energy efficiency resources for SMEs and startups. The platform will include a website with energy efficiency advice, an eLearning course and an energy saving competition. If you work for a young SME, defined as a company with fewer than 50 employees that has been operating for under five years, you can register your interest in the START2ACT programme now. If you do not meet these criteria and are interested in receiving energy saving advice, please see the Carbon Trust Green Business Fund.
