Synergie Environ led the programme to provide both one-to-one and one-to-many Carbon Management Plan (CMP) development support through an initial pilot followed by a rolling programme funded by the Carbon Trust. A total of 40 businesses were supported to develop CMPs.
The project involved the SEL team working closely with businesses to review existing on site consumption and operations and to develop projects which, when implemented would save each company money and reduce carbon emissions. The opportunities identified were very varied and included lighting, heat recovery, renewable energy and transportation projects.
The project identified carbon reduction measures that in total when implemented would realise annual cost savings in excess of £2.3 million and annual carbon savings of almost 14,000 tonnes.
