Net Zero Transition Fund (NZTF)
The Net Zero Transition Fund, has been created with £5million from the Scottish Government’s Third Sector Growth Fund.
The Social Enterprise Net Zero Transition Fund (NZTF) is designed to support social enterprises and the wider third sector to make the transition to carbon net zero.
The FundThe purpose of the fund is to support these social sector organisations (SSO’s) in their journey to become carbon neutral, and to develop the circular economy. Through the fund we are interested in supporting activities that will reduce carbon footprint. Here are some examples of activities however, please note this is not an exhaustive list and we are keen to see a range of activities come forward - 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 The fund provides loans from as little as £10,000, however the grant element has recently been withdrawn.
