Free sustainability advice for my business

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

Energy Efficiency

Our Energy Efficiency Business Support Service offers businesses free support to reduce energy costs by an average of 24%. Perhaps you have a simple question regarding lighting or are looking for a detailed energy opportunities assessment, we can provide specialist and independent advice, for free. 

Our 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 Energy Efficiency 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.

The Resource Efficiency Pledge is a nationwide initiative that 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.  

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.

Construction Industry Support Programme

We all want a construction industry in Scotland that is fit for purpose and fit for the future. There are many challenges facing the industry now and more on the horizon, including a climate crisis, and resource scarcity. These challenges can be met or prepared for, by helping make businesses and their supply chains more circular, resilient and future proof.

The Construction Advice and Support Service works collaboratively with businesses to help them identify and implement new opportunities to improve the way they work or deliver construction projects that will have economic, social and environmental long-term benefits.
