Did you know that the Government is planning to launch (following a long campaign by the Environmental Industries Commission) a new “Green Technology Challenge” tax incentive for companies purchasing a range of environmental technologies?

The seminar is designed for both suppliers and users of environmental technology to tell you all you need to know about:

  • What the Green Technology Challenge tax incentive is
  • What technologies it will cover
  • How it can make/save your company money


The Green Technology Challenge tax incentive will provide first-year capital allowances to companies which invest in specific environmental technologies. They will focus on

  • Reducing water use and improve water quality
  • Tackling climate change through energy-saving technologies
  • Cleaner road fuels and vehicles


This tailored seminar on the Green Technology Challenge will:

  • Hear direct from Treasury officials on how the tax incentives will work
  • Set out all the detail you need about whether your technology will qualify and how to apply
  • Ensure you understand how your company can claim the tax incentives for investments
  • Explain how the specific criteria for water quality and climate change technologies will apply


All companies selling or purchasing environmental technologies, or advising environmental performance, need to make sure they understand how these new tax incentives will impact on their business and their clients. The seminar is, therefore, designed for:

  • Companies Purchasing Environmental Technologies and Services
  • Environmental Technology Providers
  • Environmental Consultancies
