Cost-of-living increase: How local businesses can thrive this winter

Cost-of-living increase: How local businesses can thrive this winter

Business Lincolnshire’s latest toolkit aims to support local businesses with rising energy costs and inflation this winter.

Business Lincolnshire has introduced a practical ‘Energy Toolkit’ to help sustain businesses across greater Lincolnshire and Rutland during the cost-of-living increase, encouraging businesses to become more energy efficient whilst also hitting environmental targets.

With specialist advice, signposting to support, and practical tips, the toolkit was created in direct response to the continuing challenges around the cost of energy for businesses across the region. The handy toolkit offers a one-stop-shop for businesses seeking help during the current turbulent economy; specifically designed to help build businesses’ resilience and develop clear marketing strategies for the future.

The toolkit explores the support available to Greater Lincolnshire and Rutland businesses within Business Lincolnshire’s Growth Hub, whilst also signposting the most up-to-date support available to businesses on a national scale.

Alongside the toolkit, Business Lincolnshire is also hosting a number of upcoming events and programmes to support sustainable business growth, including the Zellar sustainability platform; providing support to businesses wanting to become more environmentally conscious.

Cllr Colin Davie, executive councillor for economy and place at Lincolnshire County Council, said: “The cost-of-living and energy increase has arrived at the same time as many SMEs are just recovering from the Covid-19 pandemic, which makes this time of year particularly difficult for many businesses across Greater Lincolnshire and Rutland.

“This new toolkit offers some fantastic resources in one place, so businesses aren’t having to search and source the most up-to-date resources themselves – which is often very time-consuming and impractical for busy business owners. I hope businesses will take advantage of our latest offering, and of course, reach out to us for more specialist support if they are struggling or need additional help.”

If businesses are looking for more specific support to help during this time, Business Lincolnshire has a number of Growth Hub advisers and specialists who provide help and advice across a range of different sectors.

For specific support around business savings and resource efficiency, our specialist adviser David Knight can also work alongside businesses to address their needs and requirements. Appointments can be booked with any of their advisers online here.
