Over the past few years we’ve helped SMEs in Lancashire identify carbon savings, reduce costs and access grant funding for low carbon technology – for free. Now extended to September 2023, we’re delighted to say we still can.
Since its launch, the MaCaW (Making Carbon Work) Project has been funded by the European Regional Development Fund alongside the University of Central Lancashire. Now, with a new agreement that has secured funding until September 2023, MaCaW is ready and able to help a whole new batch of Lancashire SMEs cut their costs by cutting carbon from their operations.
And applications for up to £15,000 of grant funding are open now.
Free for Lancashire SMEs
MaCaW helps businesses reduce energy costs and CO2e emissions. The free service is for any Lancashire business meeting the following criteria:
- Employs 250 staff or fewer
- Has an annual turnover equal to or less than €50 million or a balance sheet total equal to or less than €43 million
- Has received less than €200,000 of state funding in the past 3 years
Transforming Lancashire businesses
Already, MaCaW’s support has proved hugely popular, helping SMEs across the county cut waste, improve their efficiency and eliminate a combined total of over 900 tonnes of CO2e from their operations. That’s roughly the equivalent of taking 409 family cars off Lancashire’s roads.
