    The fund can support a wide range of activities that will reduce carbon footprint, including but not limited to:

    • Reducing energy consumption
    • Improving energy efficiency
    • Developing or moving to renewable energy sources
    • Transitioning to sustainable transport options
    • Scaling local food production and supply
    • Minimising or re-purposing food waste
    • Developing circular economy products, services, processes and practices.

    The fund provides loans from £10,000 to £1,500,000. Organisations who have a particular circular economy focus or are proposing specific projects with a focus on re-use, repair and leasing/sharing models, may also be eligible for a small grant award of up to £20,000.
