Free green grants and sustainability advice for Watford business owners.

Wenta are working in partnership with Watford Borough Council to help businesses in Watford reduce their carbon footprint through a new, free support programme. We know that time is often the big barrier that stops business owners from learning more about reducing their carbon footprint and the many benefits. That's why we've made this programme super simple to access.  

What is Watford Net Zero?

Watford Net Zero is a free of charge, impartial service for all business owners in Watford. 

Through the free service you will be able to access and complete a free business 'carbon footprint calculator' tool that will give you an overview of your baseline carbon footprint.  Depending on your business' ambitions, you can then go on to:

  • Accessing green grants relevant to your business and location.
  • Accessing Wenta's Action Zero training modules, designed to educate and help you understand more about decarbonisation and what measures you can take to reduce your climate impact.
  • Speaking to Wenta's experienced and Carbon Literate certified Net Zero and Business Advice Team.
  • Obtaining Wenta's recognised CPD certification for you and your business which can boost your brand in a world of growing eco-conscious customers and supply chains.  This can also be applies to your marketing materials and included in future business development proposals.
  • Plus much more.

What's the catch? There isn't one. It's all FREE thanks to our partnership with Watford Borough Council.

“Suppliers will now only work with organisations that clearly state their intentions towards environmental impacts, and want to see a commitment that manages and minimises this.”
