Sustainable Business Programme Manager, Kent County Council
Rob heads up the Low Carbon Kent team at Kent County Council. This is the business-facing arm of Sustainable Business & Communities and pulls together a range of projects and programmes which have the common aim of supporting and growing the low carbon economy across Kent, Medway and the wider South East region.
As such, he has a broad knowledge of (and access to!) many business and community support opportunities including the last tranche of EU funded grants (including LoCase) and guidance to help Kent County Council firms design and carry out a range of plans for a green recovery.
The Kent Realising Electric Vans (REVS) Scheme with a fleet of 39 EV models to loan out for 6-8 weeks for free to those organisations who drive on Kent’s trunk roads also comes under Rob’s remit. The Scheme has seen great success so far with some200 organisations undertaking a trial.
