A Green Business Programme has launched to help businesses across Cambridgeshire reduce their carbon footprint, increase energy efficiency and work towards Net Zero
It has been created by Cambridge City Council, Huntingdonshire District Council, South Cambridgeshire District Council, the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Growth Hub and the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority and is funded by the UK Government through the Shared Prosperity Fund.
The 18-month programme aims to support 223 SMEs based in Cambridge, Huntingdonshire and South Cambridgeshire and will also deliver grant funding of up to £5,000 to 75 of these businesses to help them implement energy efficiency-related improvements.
Allia and PECT will work with the councils and the CPCA Growth Hub to deliver the programme, with Allia responsible for managing the grant aspect of the programme, overseeing the distribution of capital grants, helping eligible businesses secure funding for carbon-reducing technology, equipment, or sustainable enhancements.
