About the Coventry and Warwickshire Green Business Programme

COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

With Coronavirus undoubtedly affecting all of us, Coventry City Council is prioritising the minimisation of risk to our team, our stakeholders, customers and our organisation in line with Government guidance. We are continuing to operate although our team members are working from home for the time being.  We are offering organisations the option of either a remote energy/environmental audit or a face to face meeting, if you are happy to send details such as electric and gas bills/photos etc. through to us and then we can write an environmental report based on our remote findings or we can come out to your business to meet with you. For more information about how an energy/environmental audit will work for your business, download our handy checklist, which explains everything.

If you would like to book an appointment with one of our advisors in the first instance please email [email protected]. One of our sustainability advisors will then call you to discuss whether your preference would be for a remote energy audit or if we need to arrange a face to face audit at your business premises. We’ll aim to respond to all enquiries within 48 hours.

Please continue to contact us at [email protected] or telephone us on 024 7697 2046.  You can also follow us on Twitter @cwgreenbusiness or visit our website www.coventry.gov.uk/greenbusiness. Our priority is to continue to support organisations with the sustainability agenda and below are some useful links containing advice and funding support for businesses during the (COVID-19) pandemic.

If you wish to discuss anything with us directly then please call us on 024 7697 2046 or 024 7683 2446.

We are excited to announce that the Coventry and Warwickshire Green Business Programme has now been extended to June 2023 and an additional £1.25m of funding for small to medium-sized businesses is available for energy efficiency measures. Find out more.

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. 

The Coventry and Warwickshire Green Business Programme is partly funded by the European Regional Development Fund and is being delivered by Coventry City Council, Coventry University, and Coventry University Enterprises Ltd. 

Since the programme started in 2016, we are very proud to report that:

  • £2.5m in grants have been awarded to 250 small to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs)

Our new three-year programme started in January 2019 and opportunities in the Low Carbon Economy will continue to grow, with a major drive to improve energy efficiency and increase the use of renewable energy.. If your business is looking to implement a renewable energy project or has the potential for high-tech green growth, support may be available to help your business grow.
