As governments across the world look at ways in which to tackle the impact of Covid-19 on the economy, many business leaders are calling for a sustainable economic recovery which supports improved health and wellbeing and the environment as well as sustained growth. Investors and shareholders globally are recognising that the business as usual model is no longer efficient or economically sustainable.

The UK government’s target is to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2050 and proposals in the forthcoming Spending Review are likely to be very much focussed around how best we can collectively achieve that target including the development of new technologies. SMEs have a key role to play in delivering these objectives, particularly at a local level where the target for net zero emissions is 2040.

Reducing your carbon footprint and driving down inefficiencies will not only give you a more competitive advantage but will also help to reduce you costs and make your business more appealing to customers. It can be difficult to know where to start however so now is the perfect time to take advantage of Clean Growth UK’s free workshops.

Green innovation
Clean Growth UK’s popular Clean Growth Innovation workshops lead attendees through a structured programme looking at how a business can optimise its environmental performance, as well as opportunities for innovation. This can include the development of any new or improved product, process, business model or service that reduces impact on the environment.

More than just a workshop

The workshops are designed to inspire ongoing strategic transformation in businesses. Attendees will have the opportunity to continue working with Clean Growth UK and its university hubs to undertake clean growth innovation projects, and take their business to the next level. An online community of participants will be facilitated to share best practice and encourage collaboration. Clean Growth UK’s North Hub, Liverpool John Moores University has a range of funded projects that can help businesses to achieve clean and sustainable growth and work towards the city region’s 2040 net zero and participants will have the opportunity to link in with these opportunities as appropriate.
Feedback from the free workshops has been very positive and some participants have already seen positive results in reducing their energy use.

“The Clean Growth innovation workshops were very informative and provided food for thought on how to help reduce our carbon footprint. The fact that the workshops were tailored to fit the audience was great as it meant that the content was relevant to those specific businesses”.

You can join a free Clean Growth Innovation taster session on 8 September led by Clean Growth UK’s North Hub, Liverpool John Moores University. The full workshop begins on 16 September and involves informative and interactive sessions spread over a number of days.
