If you work in an office, or from home you can take extra steps to be sustainable such as installing solar panels on the roof, installing heat pumps, and creating a recycling system for your workplace, with relatively little cost..

There is currently almost £5 billion pounds worth of grant money available to businesses that can help you with a range of goals, from insulating your office, installing heat pumps, to installing renewable energy installations.

A great place to start is by contacting a reputable environmental business agency such as the Carbon Trust for free and expert advice on how to lower your emissions, and what grants your business is applicable for. 

Some examples of regional grant schemes are the Low Carbon Workspace programme, and the West of England Growth Hub. However most grants are available on a county by county basis, a good starting place is the GOV.UK website’s finance and support page, or by contacting your local council directly.
