Resource Efficient Business (REBiz) programme

The REBiz programme provided advice and grants to small to medium-sized businesses to help them become more resource efficient.

We provided advice and grants of up to £40,000 to small and medium-sized businesses in Leeds City Region and parts of York and North Yorkshire to help them lower their energy use, introduce circular economy principles and reduce water and waste costs.

We provided support and guidance to 375 firms, and helped 120 firms save money and resources by tackling the barriers that business owners face in reducing costs related to energy, water and waste.

Overall, we helped businesses to save over £1 million, 1 million kWh of energy, and 2780 tonnes of carbon a year, whilst working towards our aim to be a zero-carbon energy economy by 2038.

REBiz (Resource Efficiency Fund 2) was part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund 2014-2020.
