  • Carbon is big driver – everything has embedded carbon within it, from the energy taken to extract a raw material, the energy required for conversion, to transport and distribution of product.. Able to spend 12 hours working with a company but often it is more – our time is free. Consultants/capital changes will come at a cost later, if required. Market failure – many SMEs not willing to find out where going wrong by paying up front. This approach tries to highlight areas for development and then pass on to private companies. Netregs report - The majority of businesses (91%) believed that they did not undertake any activities that were harmful to the environment but the proportion of businesses that stated they did carry out harmful activities increased with the size of the business.

  • Sectoral restrictions - production of synthetic fibres, textiles and clothing, motor vehicles, shipbuilding, coal and steel, agriculture and food processing. Aspirations to grow – companies who are growing, are planning for growth or may be looking at a step change into a new market. Given recession growth has been difficult so this is taken into consideration.
