  • Scottish Enterprise Briefing: Green Business Support Fund

    Monday, June 14, 2021

    In conjunction with Scottish Enterprise, CeeD are running a briefing workshop during which you’ll be able to learn how you can apply for funding of up to £500,000 from the Green Business Support Fund for green jobs activities.

    Due to the short deadline for the first funding call - closing 12pm 24th June - we are running an event this Monday 14th June at 11am - 12pm.

    This is a briefing workshop during which you’ll be able to learn how you can apply for funding of up to £500,000 from the Green Business Support Fund for green jobs activities. The Fund aims to support businesses to create and maintain jobs that improve the environment, and to support projects that align to the Scottish Government net zero policies. 

    This event is your opportunity to find out more about the competition and ask any questions you may have.  A second call is anticipated in September so this is therefore not only your chance to question Terry Hogg about the Competition but through the CeeD network, find a business partner with whom to work and apply for funding now or in the near future.

  • Q & A session to support any companies interested in applying for the Green Jobs call.

    Monday, May 31, 2021

     

    Monday 31st of May from 4-5pm, Q & A session to support any companies interested in applying for the Green Jobs call. Participants will have an opportunity to ask questions from those who are running the call to help with ongoing applications, or deciding to make an application to the Call.

    Please click here to register.

    The green jobs funding is being delivered as competitive funding calls, which are rounds of funding that open and close periodically for fixed amounts of time and from which the best projects will be chosen for support. The green jobs calls aim to support businesses to create and maintain jobs that improve the environment, and to support projects that align to the Scottish Government net zero policies. By ‘net zero’, we mean the Scottish Government’s commitment to achieving net zero carbon and greenhouse gas emissions by 2045.

    The first call is aimed at supporting businesses to:

    • Create green jobs (these are new jobs that relate directly to the transition to net zero) or facilitate the transition of a job from non-green to green
    • Minimise environmental impacts by developing sustainable low carbon products or services

    The first call is now open until 12 noon on Tuesday 24 June 2021.
