Glasgow City Council has introduced a new Green Business Support programme to help local companies transition to Net-Zero, reduce their energy costs and become more resilient to climate change. The programme is part of the Glasgow Green Deal, a nine-year mission to transform the city’s economy to tackle the climate and ecological emergency.
The Green Business Support Programme consists of two elements - Green Business Grants, and advice and support.
The Green Business Grant will offer up to £10,000 to SMEs based in Glasgow who can provide match funding and is targeted at activities which address both the cost of living and climate crises, such as energy efficiency, renewables, active travel and waste management.
In addition, the council is supporting a wider programme of advice and support to support SMEs on their journey. The advice programme will see the Council partnering with a range of organisations to enhance the breadth and depth of support to businesses on their journey to net zero.
This project is part-funded by the UK Government through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund. For more information, please visit www.glasgow.gov.uk/greenbusinesssupport.
