Business Climate Challenge

In 2022 we successfully secured funding and support from Greater London Authority under the Business Climate Challenge (BCC) to help businesses reduce energy bills and cut carbon emissions. This was a unique opportunity for Positively Putney members to start to future-proof their businesses against rising energy prices and help London become net zero. Twenty businesses within Putney were provided with an energy audit worth an estimated £6,000.

The BCC supported businesses to commit to reducing their workplace energy consumption by at least 10% in a year. They received expert support including:
• a workplace audit identifying ways to reduce energy use
• bespoke recommendations including ‘quick wins’ for energy conservation, deeper retrofits, and a roadmap of actions to reach net zero emissions
• training sessions for relevant staff
• peer-sharing with other participating businesses
