As well as cutting carbon emissions, reducing energy related costs is important to sustaining economic growth for Derbyshire businesses.
With increasing energy costs increasingly making up a large proportion of businesses expenditure, training staff in behavioural change and even investing in energy efficient technologies can be highly cost effective.
Adapting to climate change can make commercial sense too. Recent Environment Agency data suggests that for every £1 spent on adapting to climate change £4 can be saved.
We run a number of schemes, along with our partners that can help businesses reduce emissions and build resilience to climate change.
Grants and free energy audits are available to help small and medium sized businesses (SMEs) are available in both Derby and Derbyshire to reduce business costs, carbon emissions and increase the comfort of employees.
