The low carbon approach to resilience

MaCaW, the Making Carbon Work project, was established to help Lancashire SMEs shift towards a low carbon model and is part funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).

You might think your carbon footprint has little to do with the current Covid-19 crisis, and even less to do with navigating the complex waters of business right now. But implementing low energy practices can play a key role in your business survival and growth. 

What are the benefits to you?

Cut costs: You can make big savings when you identify carbon reductions with MaCaW and can access matched grant funding of up to £15,000. For any company fighting to stay afloat, those aren’t savings you can afford to ignore, especially when the support to achieve them is free.

Boost tenders: At times like these, new projects from new clients take on even greater significance. That makes the tender all important, and sustainability and low carbon working are vital elements of many tendering exercises. The actions you take now could directly influence the clients you win next. 

Work economically and sustainably: For many businesses that work with MaCaW, carbon reduction is just the start of what becomes a bigger – and more rewarding – commitment. And when sustainability becomes a habit, saving money does too.

Lowering carbon isn’t a distraction from your current challenges. It’s one solution to them. Let MaCaW help to lower your carbon and costs.

MaCaW is a University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) project, funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and supported by Boost, Lancashire’s business growth hub.
