Zero Waste Scotland announces funding to help businesses go green
Resource Efficient Scotland Implementation Fund 2015/16
Resource Efficient Scotland, a programme of Scottish Government funded Zero Waste Scotland, has launched an Implementation Grant fund and an SME Loan fund to help businesses overcome barriers to implementing resource efficiency measures.
Small to medium enterprises (SMEs) and third sector organisations can address time and expertise challenges by employing someone on a short-term basis to undertake a project with a specific focus on energy, water or raw material efficiency or waste prevention, through the Resource Efficient Scotland Implementation grant funding.
It is recognised that while organisations understand the benefits of resource efficiency, they often do not take action, lacking both time and money to make the necessary changes. This fund has therefore been designed to help organisations overcome these barriers through the provision of funding to pay for new personnel or the redeployment of existing personnel as a short-term skilled resource to undertake a particular project with a focus on energy, water and raw materials efficiency, and waste prevention, or a subset of these.
They are encouraging applications that take a holistic approach and show diversity of the types of savings that will be achieved by the implementation.They also welcome applications from organisations such as Business Improvement District management organisations wishing to work with groups of businesses to address these issues.
