Business energy and grants

Our aim is to get the county to net zero carbon by 2030. Local and national grants are available to help businesses and community groups reduce their carbon footprint or improve their energy efficiency. And business support groups can help with signposting and supporting applications for funds.

The Business Futures Forum is a network for local businesses looking to increase their efficiency and profitability while enhancing their sustainability and reducing their environmental impact. 

Quarterly meetings focus where possible on  case studies and tours of members premises. Recent topics have included energy, resource efficiency, transport, waste, operations efficiency, grants, funding and legislation. 

The Marches Growth Hub Herefordshire offers face-to-face support services for Herefordshire businesses of any size, sector or stage of development. They can help you find out about local business funding, finance and support, including for energy efficiency grants. They also provide an online business support directory with up to date details of grants and funding available locally and nationally.
