Introducing Merton Business Support Service
Merton Chamber of Commerce, working with a consortia of professional and commercial partners, has been awarded a four year contract by London Borough of Merton, to deliver the Merton Business Support Service. The contract was won through a comprehensive competitive tender. Merton Council is one of the few local authorities in the country that is directly supporting the creation and growth of local businesses and the service will support over 2000 businesses.

Small businesses in London boroughs of Barking & Dagenham, Kensington & Chelsea, Merton, Richmond, Wandsworth (possibly other boroughs too) are able to get free advice and consultancy from qualified environmental specialists to help them reduce their costs and save money by ‘going green’.
The project will enable each participating business to access 12 hours of support tailored to their specific needs and priorities, be they the need to: reduce costs; win larger contracts; have a better understanding in order to comply with legislation around waste and recycling; purchase more environmentally friendly products; access finance to pay for a major greening investment or a combination of some of these.
