What does this involve?

The Green Jobs Fund (GJF) helps businesses, community groups and potential investors explore renewable energy generation and circular economy schemes that can create local, fair, green jobs.

It also provides support for green business adaptations to encourage local businesses to adapt their processes and business models to support industrial decarbonisation and meet net zero targets.

The fund aims to support economic recovery and renewal while tackling climate change and helping North Ayrshire to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2030.

The Green Jobs Fund can help businesses implement a green route map to support them through 5 'green' stages:

  • no or limited understanding

  • practices embedded in process and culture
  • green exemplar

It can also potentially provide the following support on a case-by-case basis:

  • specialist consultancy support
