Low Carbon & Environmental

There’s no denying it, low carbon and environmental markets are huge – estimated to be worth over £3 trillion to the global economy.

The sector is fast-paced and can be difficult to navigate, in no small part due to changes to environmental legislation and the fact that low carbon technologies are constantly evolving.

 

What do we do?

Our fully-funded support is designed to help companies take advantage of rapidly growing low carbon markets.

This could be by providing market intelligence to support sales and business development, or using our specialist knowledge of the sector to support business strategy or new product development.

As well as supporting those already in the sector, we can also help other companies to diversify their offer and capitalise on the opportunities of this rapidly growing marketplace.

We offer one-to-one support and advice, while our innovative online Low Carbon Network provides tailored sales opportunities and connections to other members. Check out, too, our series of Low Carbon Masterclasses, which are running until February 2018.
