Grant scheme to help Doncaster businesses reach Net Zero

A grant scheme could help Doncaster businesses reach their net-zero aspirations in line with the UK Government targets and the Climate Emergency declared by Doncaster Mayor, Ros Jones.

Any SME business can apply for this grant worth up to a maximum of £3,000 and can use it to develop decarbonisation initiatives that will help them become “greener” and ultimately a more environmentally aware organisation.

Doncaster Mayor Ros Jones said: “We are committed to doing everything possible to reduce our carbon footprint. Having secured this latest government funding, we are looking forward to helping as many businesses as we can to be much more energy-efficient and help the borough achieve its net-zero ambitions.”

There are two different routes to achieving net-zero:

  • Reduce existing emissions
  • Actively remove greenhouse gases

How do I become a net-zero carbon company?

  1. Understand your current emissions…
  2. Set targets for reduction…
  3. Deliver carbon reductions and efficiencies…
  4. Develop low carbon products or business models…
  5. Compensate for your current emissions…
  6. Develop climate projects now, as part of your future strategy…

Any of the above involves investing now to improve existing projects, develop new ones and demonstrate your commitment to climate action and change.

This grant is funded by the South Yorkshire Mayoral Combined Authority (SYMCA) and administered by Business Doncaster.
