Free sustainability advice 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. Perhaps you have a simple question regarding lighting or are looking for a detailed opportunities assessment, 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 such as Green Champions enables you to learn at your own pace from the comfort of your desk.

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.  

Specialists support is available for food and drink waste prevention to help meet Scottish Government reduction targets.

For the construction sector there is free, expert help to prevent construction waste as well as find ways to design, plan and buy for a decarbonised future. 

The website offers a wealth of tools, resources and case studies about supported organisations. If your business would like to benefit from an average saving of 24% on your energy bills give the helpline a call on 0808 808 2268 today or email us. 

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 email us to find out more.
