Businesses are being offered free support and funding to develop a plan that will help them get to Net Zero and cut their carbon emissions.

De Montfort University Leicester (DMU), the University of Leicester, Loughborough University and East Midlands Chamber have joined forces to help companies in Leicestershire.

It is hoped to reach more than 200 people and support more than 80 businesses through the work, which is funded by the Government’s Community Renewal Fund.
