A new initiative called Low Carbon Lincolnshire has been launched by Business Lincolnshire offering tailored workshops for SMEs keen to shift to sustainability.
A series of fully-funded workshops and supporting materials will be delivered by the business support team at PECT, an environmental charity based in Peterborough, which already works with more than 300 organisations on sustainability and decarbonisation projects.
Says Councillor Colin Davie, Executive Councillor for Economy & Place at Lincolnshire County Council: “Business Lincolnshire’s Low Carbon Lincolnshire programme offers vital support to our local SMEs. These fully funded workshops are a gateway for small businesses in Greater Lincolnshire and Rutland to embrace sustainability and contribute to the broader Net Zero mission. A crucial initiative for a greener and more resilient business landscape in our region.”
The UK has set an ambitious goal of becoming Net Zero by 2050, and many large businesses have pledged to bring their target forward to 2030. Whilst there is guidance for larger organisations, the national objective requires the involvement of all sectors, including small businesses, which constitute 99% of the UK’s enterprises and employ 60% of the workforce.
