The project provides direct support to cleantech (also known as climate tech) SMEs from across London, who are seeking to innovate, grow and create jobs, bring new low carbon solutions to market, and reduce London’s greenhouse gas emissions. The project also supports non-climate tech (everyday businesses) SMEs to innovate towards low carbon business models and adopt low carbon technologies to accelerate their emissions reductions.

The Project offers three pathways and provides a unique approach to supporting innovation.
