Kent County Council (KCC) works with businesses in Kent to support them to cut their costs, reduce their carbon footprint, take advantage of opportunities in the low carbon market and adapt to inevitable climate change. Support is delivered through the Low Carbon Kent business network.
The low carbon market includes businesses who have green products or who are operating in an environmentally sound manner. A recent study estimated that the market could contribute up to £1 billion to the Kent economy, employing between 17,000 and 25,000 people. The network aims to bring these businesses together across Kent, supporting them to grow and become more resilient, creating jobs and increasing the economy of Kent.
Within the SAFE-ICE cluster Kent City Council will, together with BSK-CiC, coordinate the expert working group Market & Policy conditions, given their experience of businesses.
The expert working group Market & Policy conditions works across all the other expert working groups.
Kent City Council is lead partner of FUSION, an Interreg IVA 2 Seas Programme that will contribute to the SAFE-ICE cluster.
