Make it Net Zero - for a smooth transition to a carbon neutral business

The race to net zero is on - make sure your business is ready!
If you are an SME manufacturer based in the South West of England, this funded* support programme from SWMAS will offer your business valuable advice and guidance at every stage of your net zero journey.

What does net zero actually mean? In simple terms, net zero refers to the balance between the volume of greenhouse gas produced and removed from the atmosphere – we reach net zero when the amount we add is completely offset by the amount we take away.

The UK government has a target to bring all UK greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2050!

 Facilitate a bespoke ‘Action Plan’ to tackle the specific priority areas identified for your individual business

 Offer ongoing help and support to tackle the additional actions identified to help you reach your net zero goals

What's included?

 A personalised ‘Action Plan’ to identify, implement, and measure relevant, and achievable, improvements

 One to one specialist support, including access to clean growth/net zero industry experts
