Following a recent decision at Sheffield City Council’s Economic Development and Skills committee, Sheffield businesses can now apply for funding from a £3.4m grant to help reduce carbon emissions, be more sustainable and protect jobs.

Running until March 2025, the project will provide support to 260 small and medium sized businesses across the region to help understand the opportunities available to reduce your SME’s carbon emissions.

Your business could benefit from a free energy audit to identify potential energy saving improvements, such as low-energy lighting systems or insulation.

The low carbon grants are available to help you invest in solutions to reduce energy consumption and costs, become more productive, resilient and environmentally friendly.

As part of the package of support available, specialists will provide comprehensive advice and support throughout the process.

With energy costs at record highs, we know how important it is for businesses to be able to access climate initiatives that reduce bills and carbon emissions at the same time, which is why this scheme has been designed.

Councillor Minesh Parekh, Labour lead for Economic Development and Skills, said:

“We know that businesses across Sheffield want to be leaders on the climate crisis and to play their part to help reach net-zero.


“These Low Carbon Grants will help Sheffield businesses reduce their energy usage, cutting their bills and carbon emissions at the same time. With energy costs at record highs, it’s so important for climate initiatives to deliver cost savings and environmental benefits.”

Delivered by South Yorkshire’s local authorities, the project is part funded by the South Yorkshire Mayoral Combined Authority’s Shared Prosperity Fund allocation, with Sheffield City Council acting as Accountable Body for the Low Carbon Grant project, on behalf of Barnsley, Doncaster and Rotherham MBCs.
