Green Economy is the evolution of decades of experience working with businesses to decarbonise whilst helping local businesses seize the opportunities that the net zero transition presents. This transition represents a significant market opportunity for our economy with the whole of the supply chain set to benefit.


Our vision and mission

Our vision is for an equitable transition to net zero, one that ensures the resilience and competition of our businesses, whilst creating growth and green jobs for the UK's green technologies and services sector.

Our mission is to help businesses to achieve net zero alongside their strategic objectives, working with the local green supply chain to grow the green technologies and services sector, creating high quality jobs that will deliver and sustain net zero into the future.


Decarbonising the business base

Businesses that reduce their carbon footprint can build resilience and increase financial security and competitive advantage by creating greater security around their consumption of greenhouse gases. Green Economy’s services have helped businesses to save more than one million tonnes of CO2e since 2013. Our sustainability, net zero and carbon footprint specialists work with businesses across multiple sectors to implement an environmental strategy that aligns with their growth plans to ensure sustained high performance.

Simultaneously, we address the market failures around the low uptake of low carbon technologies by working with business leaders to demystify the technological solutions to the net zero opportunity. Our ambition is to increase confidence and access to the low carbon goods and services sector so that procuring green products and services isn’t just the right choice, it is also the easiest choice.


Growing the green tech sector

Whilst some green tech businesses are already well positioned to develop the new market opportunities presented by the UK's net zero ambition, others require additional support to win new business, drive innovation, upskill their workforces and demonstrate their technical expertise to the market.

We provide services that improve the competitiveness of green tech businesses, with business growth support, market intelligence, peer learning, and the opportunity to benchmark their abilities against their peers.
