Clean Growth Innovation South
Clean Growth Innovation is about optimising your business performance. It’s a commercially-driven ethos that drives down costs and carbon footprint, improves resilience, and positions your business as a leader.
The Covid 19 situation has also forced many businesses to consider how they can be more resilient in the future, and as many explore how they will ‘reset’ their operations innovation and change will be key. The Net Zero Carbon 2050 target is still set so innovating with a cleaner and greener approach will support a more sustainable future and help future-proof your business.
Looking at upstream and downstream processes in your business, we’ll support innovation in energy supply and use, and discover the opportunities in automation and process improvements. There will be a focus on action and the steps needed to make changes happen.
You’ll get tailored advice and the opportunity for ongoing collaboration with Clean Growth UK and fellow businesses on your sustainable innovation journey. Our e-collaboration platform will facilitate connection, discussion and the sharing of ideas and best practise between the trainer and participants during and between the workshop sessions.
The workshop will cover…
- Energy saving and generation
- Process automation
- Clean and green new product and service innovation
