An initiative has been launched to support micro, small or medium-sized businesses in North Wales to realise the benefits of improving their digital and net zero capabilities.

The Green Digital Academy run by Busnes@LlandrilloMenai is in its second year and is set to make an even greater impact with funding and support available for up to 175 companies.

Having successfully bid for £1.4 million from the UK Government’s Shared Prosperity Fund, the programme will provide mentoring and support for SMEs to develop a decarbonisation action plan which allows the business to access capital grants.

Busnes@LlandrilloMenai is part of Grŵp Llandrillo Menai and provides training and support to businesses in the region.

The project will help owners take action to meet growing consumer demand for environmentally friendly products and services. The aim is to increase profits through reduced production costs and efficiency for the businesses that take part.

Businesses in the counties of Conwy, Denbighshire, Flintshire, Gwynedd and Ynys Môn should contact Busnes@LlandrilloMenai for further information or to take part in the programme. 

Demand is high so the message is clear - those who are interested should register as soon as possible.  The fund closes December 2024.
