Project - 15 July 2020



DE-Carbonise offers a comprehensive programme of assistance for small and medium enterprises seeking to reduce their carbon emissions in operations, production and supply chain.

Small and medium sized businesses can access a suite of carbon reduction support including a carbon reduction audit and report; grant funding to implement carbon reduction recommendations; technical support, consultancy and process improvements from academic teams within the University within a specific area of expertise and cohort-based learning and development for smart manufacturing and sustainable supply chain innovation.

Businesses will be introduced to a lead contact to discuss their needs and support them throughout the intervention which can include an initial scoping phone call, business visit for a carbon reduction audit, carbon reduction opportunity report and a package of support.

Derby City and Derbyshire County Councils will provide carbon reduction audits, technical support and grants for site carbon reduction measures including improved insulation, lighting, heating and controls; efficient motors, compressors, equipment; electric vehicles, electric vehicle charge points; renewable energy generating technologies; resource efficiency and waste reduction and recycling.

Grants between £1,000 and £20,000 are available in Derby and Derbyshire.
