Free support for my business

We have two main areas of business support: resource efficiency and circular economy, funded by the Scottish Government and European Regional Development Funding. 

Resource Efficiency

Resource Efficient Scotland offers businesses free support to reduce costs by implementing resource efficiencies in energy, water, raw materials and waste management.

Whether it is a one-off question you may have regarding lighting or an on-site audit you are looking for, we can provide specialist and independent advice, for free.

Resource Efficient Scotland logoOur package of support includes training, funding, tailored advice and specific tools, delivered through a variety of channels: online, on-site or over the phone. Practical online tools such as the Savings Finder can help your business identify ways to reduce costs, whilst one-to-one telephone support or a site visit from an Implementation Advisor can really help you make the most out of your resources. Free online training tools such as Green Champions and Green Town are also available to allow your business to learn at your own pace and in the comfort of your own workplace.

Our Resource Efficiency Pledge, a nationwide initiative which recognises, supports and promotes businesses that are committed to sustainable growth, is another great way to access our support and gain official recognition for putting resource efficiency measures into practice.  

Sector specific support is available with specialists on hand to offer dedicated advice and support and sector specific tools such as the Construction Material Exchange or the Green Retail App for small retailers interested in making efficiency savings.

Looking for inspiration or ideas on where to start? Visit the Resource Efficient Scotland website for instant free access to a wealth of free tools, resources and case studies or simply call 0808 808 2268 today.

Circular Economy 

Our specialist Circular Economy team offers one-to-one support and investment opportunities for businesses to pioneer circular business models, ideas and approaches. Approaches that build business resilience based on products that can be re-used, repaired or recycled or transform waste into raw materials. If you are a business intent on moving the goalposts, please contact circulareconomy@zerowastescotland.org.uk to find out more.
