The North West Eco-Innovation Programme
Helping you eco-innovate
The North West Eco-Innovation Programme provided free, tailored support to nearly 400 businesses helping them exploit the market for sustainable products and low-carbon solutions. We helped a wide range of companies develop products and services that are now contributing to a lower carbon economy. Read the case studies for some examples.
The Eco-Innovation Programme has now ended, but building on the success of the programme C-Tech Innovation are pleased to be able to offer a similar range of services – please take a look at our Sustainable innovation pages here. These services are now available to non-SMEs and to businesses outside of the North-West.
C-Tech Innovation also administer (in collaboration with Oxford University) the Environmental Sustainability Knowledge Transfer Network. This network, which is free to join, aims to help you with your sustainability-related projects:

As a direct result of the Programme we have clearly identified areas of improvement to our eco impact and cost effectiveness.”
