Derbyshire Net Zero Accelerator

Running between March and June 2022, the Derbyshire Net Zero Accelerator Programme provides an opportunity for businesses to improve their energy, resource and operational efficiency, reduce costs and greenhouse gas emissions, gain green business skills and take some giant steps in their journey towards Net Zero.

In collaboration with the East Midlands Chamber and Derbyshire County Council, the Net Zero Accelerator Programme is delivered by the University of Derby, with support from several leading-edge organisations like ZellarCenex and Investors in the Environment, who together provide a suite of opportunities which will be tailored to respond to individual business needs. The Derbyshire Net Zero Accelerator has been funded through the UK Government Community Renewal Fund.
