What to expect from this event

Business Gateway East Dunbartonshire, in conjunction with East Dunbartonshire Council and Zero Waste Scotland’s Resource Efficient Scotland programme, are running awareness sessions for businesses in the area to inform them of the practical and financial support available to them to become more resource efficient, cut energy and water use and reduce waste.This is also in support of East Dunbartonshire Council's Sustainability and Climate Change Framework, which sets out how the Council is working with others to promote more resource-efficient, equitable and financially sustainable practices.

The support offered by the Resource Efficient Scotland programme includes:

  • Fully funded one-to-one support from technical specialists to assist and advise businesses with how they can make practical savings.
  • 15% cashback on interest free and unsecured loans from £1,000 to £100,000 for any energy, water and waste projects that will deliver carbon savings.Examples of how the loan has been used include upgrade to energy efficient lighting, insulation of premises to lower heating bills and the installation of a new biomass boiler.
  • Enhanced Capital Allowances scheme, which enables businesses to claim 100% first-year capital allowance on purchases of certain energy and water saving equipment.
  • Guidance on implementing the “Good to go” scheme which encourages cafes and restaurants to enable customers to take leftover food home.
