Chamber-Toyota partnership champions energy efficiency amongst small businesses

A new partnership between East Midlands Chamber and Toyota Motor Manufacturing aims to bring to life energy efficiency for small businesses.

The fully funded Energy Reduction workshop, part of the Accelerator project funded by the UK Government through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund, provides a rare opportunity to experience a practical demonstration and shop floor observation with Toyota Energy Specialists.

It also includes an overview of their strategic approach to decarbonisation and energy cost management and aims to demonstrate decarbonisation and competitiveness in action.

East Midlands Chamber Deputy Chief Executive Diane Beresford said: “Any decision-maker in a business that meets the eligibility criteria of the Accelerator project is welcome to express their interest in joining us on the day although larger-sized SMEs with a particularly high energy consumption will take priority and we expect manufacturing and logistics businesses to derive the most value.

“Whilst participation is fully funded, the workshop is valued at around £600 per person so I’ve no doubt it will be a highly popular offer.”

Toyota Manufacturing UK Senior Manager, Environment and Carbon Neutrality Project John Malpas said: “We have over 30 years of energy kaizen experience achieving significant energy reductions and technological breakthroughs. The workshop aims to inspire others through sharing our decarbonisation activities by practical observations and demonstrations on the shopfloor by our Energy Support and Collaboration Team.”

Businesses can choose from three dates. Each session is limited to 15 places, takes place over the course of five hours and will be held on the following Tuesdays: 30th July, 24th September and 29th October.

Businesses interested in attending are invited to contact Ian Bates​​​​, Policy and Representation Manager at East Midlands Chamber ian.bates@emc-dnl.co.uk.
