ICAEW members based in Greater Manchester, or working with clients located in Greater Manchester can benefit from the range of free advice and support offered by the Business Growth Hub’s Green Growth Service.
The project is 50% ERDF and 50% Greater Manchester Combined Authority funded and can provide a range of complimentary services including:
“The grant fund gives us scope to support a tremendous range of carbon saving projects, with recent approvals including LED lighting and Compressors alongside more bespoke machinery and equipment including Digital Rectifiers and Multiple Winding Machines. We’re open to any good carbon and cost saving application whether from Accountancy practices themselves, or their wider GM client base”
“We can bespoke these around clients needs to include content spanning Green Credentials, Quick Wins to Energy Savings, Renewable Energy, Staff Engagement, Lighting, or other more technical areas depending on needs of your client.”
For both accountancy practitioners and their wider client base, Ousey sees massive scope for the Green Growth service to provide a valuable service.
“In previous projects our funder targets meant we had to focus our support on medium and high energy users, but in the current project we have a far wider remit to provide support to all GM SMEs regardless of energy spend. We’re thus really keen to speak with Accountancy practitioners about how we can frame our support, whether that looks like a free resource efficiency review at their site, or that of a key GM client, or delivering a workshop for a group of members or their clients around shared green issues or opportunities,”
