SEMLEP'S Growth Curve

The Green Recovery and Innovation Programme

Are you an SME in North or West Northamptonshire looking to grow, improve productivity and increase the sustainability of your business in 2022? Enrol on the Green Recovery and Innovation Programme.

The effects of climate change are becoming clearer and clearer and are currently only set to get worse. The science is unambiguous; we need to halve greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 and achieve net zero emissions by 2050 or risk facing serious consequences.

SMEs in North and West Northamptonshire are invited to enrol onto our new programme designed to increase innovation levels and improve the green credentials of local businesses.

Enrol today to get support on innovation projects and set decarbonisation measures. Once you have a completed Innovation or Decarbonisation Plan in place, you may be able to access funding to help you execute it. Information on the steps necessary to access a Green Recovery and Innovation Grant can be found below:
