European funding for environmental projects

We are a lead partner for the Resource Efficient Circular Economy Accelerator Programme in the current round of European Structural Funds in Scotland.

This strategic intervention has a total value of £73 million, funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), and will run to December 2022.

The intervention aims to improve the economic performance of SMEs while at the same time reducing their impact on the natural environment, in line with Scottish Government and EU policies.

Activity is delivered through specific operations, covering resource efficiency, circular economy, and the Climate Challenge Fund.
