The Low-Carbon Approach to Resilience
The MaCaW Team produced an article for Lancashire Business View in November 2020 to showcase how our low carbon offer, available to Lancashire SMEs, can aid in business recovery following the impacts of COVID-19. Below is the article and we again thank the LBV team for producing this for us!
MaCaW, the Making Carbon Work Project, was established to help Lancashire SMEs shift towards a low-carbon model and is funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
You might think your carbon footprint has little to do with the current COVID-19 crisis, and even less to do with navigating the complex waters of business right now. But, implementing low energy practices can play a key role in your business survival and growth.
What are the benefits to you?
Cut Costs: You can make big savings when you identify carbon reductions with MaCaW and can access grant funding of up to £15,000. For any company fighting to stay afloat, those aren’t savings you can afford to ignore, especially when the support to achieve them is free.
Boost Tenders: At times like these, new projects from new clients take on greater significance. That makes the tender all important, and sustainability and low-carbon working are vital elements of many tendering exercises.
Work economically and sustainably: For many businesses that work with MaCaW, carbon reduction is just the start of what becomes a bigger – and more rewarding – commitment. And when sustainability becomes a habit, saving money does too.
Lowering carbon isn’t a distraction from your current challenges. It is one solution to help them. Let MaCaW help lower your carbon and costs.
