We provide advice and grants of up to £10,000 to small and medium-sized businesses in Leeds City Region (not Barnsley) to help them lower their carbon footprint, energy use and water and waste costs.

Coordinated through our Resource Efficiency Fund, we are aiming to help at least 300 firms save money and resources by tackling the barriers that business owners face in reducing costs related to energy, water and waste. Overall, we want to help businesses to save nearly £500,000, 1 million kWh of energy, and over 3,000 tonnes of carbon a year, while also helping us in our aim to be a zero-carbon energy economy by 2036.

The Resource Efficiency Fund is part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund 2014-2020
