Green Growth

Green Growth Logo

Increase your profitability by reducing your environmental impact. Take advantage of the growing market for low carbon and environmental goods and services.

We’ve helped Greater Manchester businesses save £100 million by becoming more efficient.

About the service

Green Growth is designed to help you increase your profitability by reducing your environmental impact and taking advantage of the growing market for low carbon and environmental goods and services.

Part of the Business Growth Hub, the services are built on the internationally recognised ENWORKS support service.

We offer tailored support in two specific areas:

Resource efficiency

We offer expert advice on transforming products and packaging through eco-design, increasing energy efficiency in day-to-day operations and making the most of renewable energy.

Our support is all about doing more with less: boosting productivity and increasing profitability by designing out the use of energy, materials and water; reducing carbon emissions in the process.

 

Better resource efficiency means a healthier balance sheet. The UK government has estimated that businesses could save around £56 billion a year by taking action and because climate change has such a profound impact on markets and resource security, the issue is becoming vital for business survival.

Depending on your size, sector and potential for savings, we can offer you a bespoke package of hands-on or hands-off support, including:

  • Green Intelligence to keep you up-to-date with green business news
  • Workshops to develop networks and new skills
  • On-site reviews to identify and quantify potential savings
  • Ongoing assistance to make improvements and win sales
  • Award-winning software to enable you to prioritise, track and report your progress

Low carbon sector

There is an impressive opportunity for growth in the LCEGS sector. In Greater Manchester alone it is growing at around 5% a year, with some 2,000 companies employing 38,000 people and achieving annual sales of over £5.5 billion.

Depending on your size, industry and potential for growth, we can offer you a bespoke package of support that includes:
