What are Green Business Grants?
Green Business Grants can be used for capital works and purchases to improve the energy efficiency of buildings and business operations. A grant could help you:
- avoid harmful emissions that contribute to climate change
- reduce your energy bills and lower maintenance costs
- make your buildings healthier for your employees
- improve your green credentials with customers and contractors
- access cutting edge low carbon technologies
- actively support the local supply chain for energy efficiency goods and services.
To apply for a grant you must be an SME based in the West of England local authorities – Bath & North East Somerset, Bristol, North Somerset or South Gloucestershire. Full details on eligibility and how to apply will be published when the grant window re-opens.
