The Low Carbon Business Programme Has Now Reported

A more comprehensive review covering the scope and scale of the project with the associated impacts on the South and Mid Essex region will follow in the coming weeks but the headlines are as follows:

  • 3,441 businesses reached
  • £2,094,964.48 in ERDF grant funding for 514 local SMEs
  • 204 FTE jobs created
  • 337 FTE jobs safeguarded
  • Confirmed annual savings of 4,872 tonnes of CO2e (with further 700T anticipated)
  • Confirmed annual efficiency savings of £1,552,194 (with further £180K anticipated)

Suffice to say, it has been a very productive and rewarding 5 years in my working life! For now it is goodbye from all of us (left) at Low Carbon Business, please speak to your local authority to see what support may be upcoming in our stead.

Appended below are a list of those supported in the form of ERDF grant funding in this second phase of the programme. Where possible, case studies have been supplied, simply search for the company name in knowledge basePlease note that all of the grants in phase 1 already have their own case study!
