Advice for businesses to address climate change
Reducing the borough's carbon footprint is a key challenge for the council and businesses have a large role to play in this. Carbon dioxide is the main contributor to climate change and it is important that businesses contribute towards reducing the amount that is produced.
Grants of up to £10,000 to help cut carbon
Grants of up to £10,000 are available to help businesses reduce their costs and greenhouse gas emissions while improving their energy efficiency to help grow low carbon and environmentally responsible businesses in Basingstoke and Deane.
The council has joined forces with local authorities across the region in the Low Carbon Across the South and East programme (LoCASE) to provide a free support programme for small and medium-sized companies.
The programme aims to help businesses to become more competitive and profitable while protecting the environment and encouraging low carbon solutions. In addition to promoting energy efficiencies, the scheme recognises the critical role small and medium-sized businesses play in developing new and innovative sustainable products and green solutions, boosting economic growth and creating new jobs.
