Fylde Council launches its Carbon Reduction Business Support Programme with Chamber Low Carbon – helping the borough’s businesses to reach net zero. A roadshow around the Fylde Borough will take place on Thursday 26 October, with each session in easy reach of Fylde’s key business areas. With increasing fuel bills of major concern to most businesses, procurement processes requiring many suppliers to have carbon reduction plans, and for those looking at ISO 50001 and ISO 14001, this event is going to be very popular.

Fylde business owners, directors, and managers responsible for their company’s net zero ambitions are invited to attend a free event, at either a breakfast, lunch, or early evening session to suit their schedules. Each session will comprise a short presentation from the Chamber Low Carbon team, providing key advice on energy efficiency, cost reduction and carbon reduction plans, plus what net zero advice and bespoke support is available to the business community.

Cllr Karen Buckley, Council Leader, said “This programme is designed to help businesses access the support they need to reduce costs by reducing consumption and increase efficiency.  The rise in energy prices and inflation are huge pressures on our business community and, whilst many entrepreneurs will want to reduce their carbon footprint, it must be economically viable to do so. This event will provide attendees with the opportunity to find out what specialist business support is on offer to them to establish or take their current plans forward. 

“Come along to one of the events to find out more.  You can also sign up to the full Chamber Low Carbon programme to receive fully funded support in environmental and energy saving/efficiency good practice, review your energy bill contracts, develop net zero targets and carbon reduction plans, or receive guidance on low carbon technology adoption. For those businesses signing up you will receive ongoing free support via a suite of events, masterclasses and 1-2-1 bespoke support.” 

Businesses can also find out what advice and support is available from partners, including BOOST Business Lancashire on a vast array of business support and finance available to them.  Aerospace, Advanced Manufacturing and Engineering, Automotive and Space businesses can seek out the specialist support from the Northwest Aerospace Alliance team too.  Information on the Fylde Apprenticeship Project and various recruitment and back-to-employment schemes will be available on the day from AFC Fylde Community Foundation and the Council’s Economic Development Team, who are co-hosting the event, would welcome the opportunity to meet employers and those with growth ambition.
