Surrey County Council is launching a programme called LoCASE that aims to help businesses become more competitive and profitable while protecting the environment and encouraging low carbon solutions.
The LoCASE programme is supported by the European Regional Development Fund to provide a free business support programme. It offers focused, individual support to small and medium sized enterprises (including social enterprises) improving competitiveness and creating jobs through increased energy efficiency and new low carbon business. Grants will be available for businesses of up to £20,000 as well as an environmental training scheme and events. Targeted business support is on offer for companies who offer ‘green’ or low carbon goods and services. All eligible small or medium sized businesses in Surrey will be given equal opportunity to apply for a grant or support. To find out more about the scheme and sign up to the mailing list click here.
