Carbon Neutral

Challenge

Ingenuity has teamed up with City Councils across the Midlands to find innovative and ground-breaking solutions that help to deliver their carbon reduction strategies.

 

Through the partnership, we are looking to support and invest in the most viable and innovative ideas that can:

1. Enable carbon reduction

How can we reduce carbon production across the city and increase carbon capture as we scale back on polluting technologies? How will we evolve the ways we travel, live in our homes, and produce what we need?

2. Create an equal, green and circular economy

How can we bring the green economy to all residents, reduce the disproportionate impact of climate change on low-income communities, and engage with all part of the business community?

3. Boost employment and drive economic recovery

How can community-led enterprises help drive the city’s levelling up agenda and provide training, jobs and employment to help tackle the climate crisis? In particular how can we improve training and access to green jobs for young people facing barriers to employment?

 

We are delighted to be working with the following City Councils for our Carbon Neutral Challenge:

  • Nottingham City Council are offering a £10,000 support package (2 x £5,000 mentorships) to help launch and pilot the best ideas that respond to this Challenge. The support package is open to the best ideas from across Ingenuity’s 2021 cohort but they must register their business to a Nottingham address (e.g. incubator or office space) to be eligible for any prizes.
  • Birmingham City Council are offering a £10,000 support package (2 x £5,000 mentorships) to help launch and pilot the best ideas that respond to this Challenge. The support package is open to the best ideas from across Ingenuity’s 2021 cohort but they must register their business to a Birmingham address (e.g. incubator or office space) to be eligible for any prizes.
