Stands will also be available to discuss support and opportunities.

Through the Net Zero programme, small medium enterprises (SME) can secure up to £100,000 in grant funding following a free decarbonisation review.

The initiative supports energy-saving measures that include LED lighting, efficient heating, insulation, and renewables, aiding businesses to make a leap towards a low-carbon future.

In affiliation with the pilot Business Energy Advice Service fund, Net Zero Worcestershire will provide eligible businesses with funds ranging from £1,000 to £10,000 for renewable projects, and up to £100,000 for energy efficiency projects in match-funded grants.

This makes sustainable upgrades more affordable, and positions businesses to meet their sustainability goals, reduce operational costs and enhance their ecological credentials.
