Their 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’, they mean the Scottish Government’s commitment to achieving net zero carbon and greenhouse gas emissions by 2045.

USD 1 million Partnership Fund for SDG Impact Projects

Funding Information

This call will offer grants of between £50,000 and £500,000. During your application, you’ll be able to request the amount you need, but you must be able to demonstrate why you need this amount. When reviewing your application, they’ll consider your eligible project costs, public funding rules and your activity types to determine if this is an appropriate amount.
This call involves a claims process, meaning it does NOT offer an up-front grant payment. If successful, you’ll need to pay for your costs up front and then claim them back from your grant. In most cases you can claim at intervals throughout your project, so you don’t need to pay for all your costs at once.
However, this grant cannot cover your entire project costs. You’ll need to fund some of these costs yourself or via other sources of funding. This grant can fund between 10% and 50% of your eligible costs.
