De-Carbonise Project

The Low Carbon Business Network supports the DE-Carbonise project which is a collaboration between the University of Derby, Derby City and Derbyshire County Councils from November 2019 for 3 years. The project provides a comprehensive programme of assistance to SMEs seeking to reduce their carbon emissions. 

Are you a small or medium sized business, based in the D2N2 region that is keen to radically improve your environmental performance?
