Your Low Carbon Programme

Whether you have started your journey to becoming low carbon or want to learn how to begin, the Low Carbon Business Support Programme can help your business.  

We aim to help businesses in the Greater Cambridge and Peterborough LEP area with FREE support to help your business cut carbon and cut costs as a result. 

The Journey

Business Diagnostic &
Low Carbon Review

All beneficiaries can start their journey with an optional business diagnostic and low carbon review. The diagnostic provides around 2 hours of support from an expert business advisor and will cover all areas of business operations with a particular focus on energy management and will help identify the key areas where support is required and which aspects of the support programme will be most beneficial.

The diagnostic is also the gateway to a comprehensive workshop programme designed to help businesses to start their own low carbon journey.

The workshop programme runs over 2 full days:

25 and 26 April 2023 (9am-4pm each day)
New Shire Hall, Emery Crescent, Enterprise Campus, Weald, Huntingdon PE28 4YE

16 and 17 May 2023 (9am-4pm each day)
