Pathway to COP26 report

Companies in Cambridge are able to apply for grants up to £10,000, to reduce their energy consumption and emissions and save on bills.

Cambridge City Council has launched a scheme named Cambridge Green Business Grants to provide funding to firms that look to make improvements on their premises.

The measures that will be funded include insulation, energy management systems and solar panels.

Successful applicants are expected to get the grants by 31st March – the companies need to finish the improvements within the following year.

Councillor Mike Davey, Executive Councillor for Finance and Resources, said: “Local businesses of all sizes can play a huge part in helping the city reach our vision of becoming a net zero carbon place.”

The local authority has already committed to achieving net zero carbon by 2o30.
