Five local councils have jointly launched a major programme aimed at helping firms in the North East region cut energy costs, reduce waste and boost performance.
The North East Resource Efficiency Programme (NEREP) will assist 40 small and medium sized businesses to implement efficiency measures across their operations and identify opportunities to adopt cost-saving ‘clean and green’ approaches. This might include, for example, measures to improve recycling, minimise waste, access to more sustainable water sources or using renewable energy.
The programme, funded by Invest NI and the European Regional Development Fund, is open to applications from firms in the Newtownabbey, Antrim, Ballymena, Larne, or Moyle council areas.
Attending the launch, Mayor Fraser Agnew commented: “This programme can offer business advice, information and one-to-one bespoke assistance. It is aimed at supporting businesses to make informed decisions around improving their running costs while supporting our environment to become greener, cleaner and safer. I would encourage Newtownabbey businesses to register an interest in this programme.”
The programme will be delivered by The InnoTech Centre in partnership with B9 Solutions and Fathom Energy and Environment Ltd.
