Aligned with similar programmes, Perseus will require a total of £2-3M funding per annum for a minimum of three years to establish its foundations. This cost is spread across members and sponsors. Membership is described in the Service Order, Terms and Statement of Works, which can be downloaded below.
Perseus aims to develop solutions that meet the needs of stakeholders across the ecosystem, and is therefore driven by its members, who contribute via five Advisory Groups. As a member, your organisation can influence the future of emissions reporting and data sharing across the economy. Membership also provides early visibility of sectoral developments, allowing members to position themselves for the future. Perseus also offered opportunities for new relationships and collaborations to emerge, and has material brand opportunities. Member logos will be included in outputs and events.
Use of funds includes: teams to lead the organisation of the Steering and Advisory Groups, lead and deliver research to support the initiative, implementation of a demonstrator with members. In addition, substantial work is required on communications and engagement, including presence at COP28. We will publish an open budget to make clear the use of funds in the near future.
To ensure that the programme is open and accessible to all businesses, we have made the fees flexible and “pay what you can afford”, although we propose the values below as a guide.
- ‘startup/micro’ businesses: we propose between £40 and £500 per month.
- SME: we propose between £500 and £2,000 per month.
- Large/enterprise: we propose over £4,000 per month.
For larger amounts, we propose invoicing the annual fee in advance. Alternatively, you can sign up below.
We appreciate where organisations are in the financial year and we can be flexible. “Founding” status will be applied assuming that a three-year commitment is made (which have a year-one break clause). Invoices are raised automatically by the system if you sign up here.
If you have any questions or require an invoice, please contact email@example.com
