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.
