The Sustainability in Enterprise project helps small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in Greater Nottingham progress towards net zero carbon.

Free, practical support is available from specialists in sustainable business operations, building management, product design, and employee engagement. We help businesses fully understand their current carbon emissions and identify effective carbon reduction measures. Financial support is also available to help businesses take action on carbon.

Support available includes:

  • Sustainability consultancy including a comprehensive environmental and carbon consultancy, product design, or student consultancy projects
  • Financial support through carbon grants of up to £9,600 or a 20% grant towards the cost of a new employee providing they have graduated in the last three years
  • Building sustainability how-how through our Carbon Management Programme, the Sustainability Community Lab for early-career professionals, or Carbon Literacy training.

Support is available to SMEs based in the Greater Nottingham SUDS area, which includes all of Nottingham City and Broxtowe borough, and parts of Ashfield, Rushcliffe and Gedling. You can view the SUDS map for a full list of eligible locations.

This support best first SMEs with owned or leased premises, who are committed to taking action on carbon reduction but lack in-house resources or expertise around sustainability.  

This project is part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
