Grow your green economy - our services for local authorities and city-regions

Across the county the impacts of climate change are already being felt with an increased risk of flooding, temperature rises and associated water shortages effecting their homes, businesses, wildlife, and green spaces. Local leaders across the country have declared climate change and biodiversity crises in their local area. Regions across the UK are on a trajectory to meet net zero emissions by at least 2050 to mitigate these impacts and secure a successful transition to a more sustainable and greener economy.

Green Economy works with local partners to deliver their transition to net zero, by analysing and developing the local green supply chain and providing support to businesses on their journey to net zero.

Growing your local green supply chain to deliver net zero


Green sector mapping and insights

We provide intelligence on your local green economy, analysing the capabilities, size and scale of the local green supply chain to identify opportunities for green tech and barriers impacting adoption at a local level. This vital data can then inform economic development planning on your transition to net zero.
