The Carbon Action Programme is expected to launch in early Spring 2024
East Devon District Council’s Cabinet have approved a £207,000 package of decarbonisation support for local businesses and community groups. 

Organisations will be able to benefit from free training, carbon surveys and carbon action plans to help them save money and increase profitability by reducing waste and carbon emissions. Firms which take part will be able to apply for grant funding later this year to help deliver their decarbonisation plans. 

A recent survey of local businesses revealed that funding for equipment to help reduce carbon emissions is a priority, together with specialist, on-site support for carbon reduction. Feedback from EDDC’s Culture, Leisure and Tourism Fund revealed that advice on equipment or 
carbon reduction was crucial, as well as being able to measure carbon savings. These experiences have helped to shape the Carbon Action Programme (CAP) support.
