The Greener Business Grant has been set up by West Suffolk Local Strategic Partnership (WSLSP) to help local businesses and organisations reduce their energy use and save money. If you are an eligible business based in West Suffolk you can apply for up to £1,000 to fund capital works designed to improve your business environmental performance.


Small and medium sized businesses in West Suffolk, including those based in Bury St Edmunds, Haverhill, Sudbury, Newmarket, Mildenhall, Brandon, Ixworth and the surrounding villages are eligible to apply. Your business will need to have participated in an environmental audit, which will form part of your application.  Further information on environmental audits can be found here.
