For South East Businesses: Do You Sell ‘Green’ Products? Are You Going Green? You Could Get A £10,000 Grant
Is your business based within the South East LEP?
Are you either selling low carbon goods/services, or are you looking to make your business more environmentally friendly?
If so, a business development EU Funded grant may be available to help your business grow, tackle climate change or adapt.
In fact, you may be eligible to claim up to a maximum of £10,000 (40% of the total project cost) against costs such as marketing, consultancy, equipment, IT software, product/process development, accreditation and certification.
The Low Carbon Across the South East (LoCASE) Programme has been created to provide business support 1,050 SMEs & cut emissions by 6,510 TCO2.
The initiative also aims to support 77 new businesses, introduce 80 new products, knowledge transfer with 47 businesses, create 270 new jobs in LCEGS sector, invest £18 million in business, and raise awareness of LCEGS to 200,000+ people.

The LoCASE project aims to reduce costs by cutting emission and to promote the opportunities of the low carbon market.
The project will provide a consistent, accessible business support programme across the South East LEP (SELEP) area to help businesses optimise their use of resources and adopt eco-innovative and low carbon solutions in ways that improve business performance in terms of resilience, profitability and competitiveness while at the same time contributing to the protection and preservation of the environment.
With this in mind, if you are taking measures to make your business more carbon friendly or if you sell products to reduce carbon emissions, and your business is based within the South East LEP, you may be eligible for the LoCASE grant.
