COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

This is affecting us all at work and at home. We’re working hard to keep services running and will focus our efforts on the most critical elements. In doing so disruption to many services is likely.

Coventry and Warwickshire Green Business Programme

COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

With Coronavirus affecting all of us, we are prioritising the minimisation of risk to our team, our stakeholders, our customers and our organisation in line with Government guidance. The Green Business Programme will continue operating, although all our team is now working remotely and not travelling for business. Therefore, we will not be able to offer any appointments for energy audits for the time being, but we are still able to provide advice to organisations through phone or video calls.

We will of course ensure that once we are able to start visiting businesses, we will prioritise those organisations who confirm that they would like an energy audit and your organisation will be added to the system in request order. Therefore, please continue to contact us at greenbusiness@coventry.gov.uk or telephone us on 024 7697 2046. You can also follow us on twitter @cwgreenbusiness.

Our priority is to continue to support organisations with the sustainability agenda and below are some useful links containing advice and support for businesses during this period of uncertainty caused by COVID-19.

The Coventry and Warwickshire Green Business Programme supports businesses with fewer than 250 employees based in Coventry and Warwickshire who want to save money on energy, waste and water bills and maximise low carbon opportunities.

We provide grants and free energy and resource efficiency audits to help identify where energy, water and waste savings can be made, as well as low carbon product development. Download our leaflet and watch how we have helped a local business grow.
