Introducing New Net Zero Expert Help: A Sustainable Future for Clackmannanshire Businesses

Net Zero Expert Help in Clackmannanshire

Sustainability is no longer a buzzword but a business necessity. With high energy costs and many supply chains now expecting suppliers to demonstrate their carbon reduction plans, businesses are increasingly recognising the importance of transitioning towards net zero operations. To help understand the challenges and complexities of this transition, Clackmannanshire Council through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund, has introduced a new Net Zero Expert Help Service for Clacks businesses to support them in their journey towards net zero. This new service can be accessed through Business Gateway Clackmannanshire, based here at Ceteris.

Net Zero Expert Help

With sustainability at the forefront now, this new Expert Help service aims to empower businesses with the knowledge, tools, and strategies necessary to reduce their carbon footprint and embrace a greener future. Offering up to three days of fully funded consultancy, experienced net zero specialists will help businesses navigate the intricacies of achieving net zero status.

Consultancy services will include, but aren’t limited to:

  • Demystifying Net Zero: Net zero can sometimes seem like a complex and abstract concept. Expert Help consultants will simplify and demystify net zero, providing businesses with a clear understanding of what it is and how it can be achieved.
  • Net Zero Achievability: Achieving net zero may seem daunting, but with Expert Help guidance, businesses will gain a realistic understanding of the steps required to reach this ambitious goal. This will include tailored, actionable strategies to make net zero achievable for you in your business.
  • Energy Efficiency Audits and Recommendations: Identifying opportunities for energy efficiency is key to reducing carbon emissions and operational costs. Consultants can conduct thorough energy efficiency audits to uncover areas for improvement and recommend solutions – with signposting to other support available if needed.
  • Finance and Grant Funding: Consultants can provide information on any grant funding and specialist finance available to implement recommendations.
  • Carbon Accounting: Understanding and quantifying carbon emissions is the first step towards reducing them. Get advice on carbon accounting systems and measures, to provide clear insights and reporting into business carbon footprints.
  • Social Governance Management Systems: Procurement tenders are increasingly requiring businesses to demonstrate their path towards net zero. Expert Help consultants will assist businesses in developing robust systems, ensuring that social responsibility is integrated into their operations and supply chain reporting.
  • Agricultural Impact: Agriculture is a significant source of UK carbon emissions. Consultants can work with agricultural businesses to assess their impact, implement sustainable practices, and explore opportunities for carbon sequestration.
