The Carbon Trust

The Carbon Trust is a private company set up in 2001 by Government in response to the threat of climate change, with the aim of accelerating the UK’s move to a low Carbon economy. The Carbon Trust works with UK business and the public sector to create practical business-focussed solutions through its external work in five complementary areas: Insights, Solutions, Innovations, Enterprises and Investments. Together these help to explain, deliver, develop, create and finance low carbon enterprise.

BJP is an engineering consultancy which employs consultants accredited to carry out work on behalf of the Carbon Trust. The advice we give can help your organisation to cut energy use, costs and Carbon emissions and will play a key role in moving the UK towards a low Carbon economy. The recommendations made can often save up to 20% on energy bills.

Tailored Support – Free Energy Survey

You will receive a practical action plan, tailored to your site and ongoing support to implement these measures.

Small and medium sized enterprises can apply for loans between £5,000 and £50,000 to install energy saving equipment to cut energy bills. The loan is available over 4 years.
