Zero Waste Scotland - SME Loan Scheme

Tue 8 Oct 19

Helping Scottish businesses save energy and money

The Scottish Government’s SME Loan Scheme is helping businesses across Scotland to reduce their energy costs and environmental impact.

Over £26 million of unsecured, interest-free loans has been provided to Scottish SMEs already – and over 1,000 cost-saving, profit-boosting projects have been supported.

Right now, while funds last, SMEs that use the loan to install eligible measures will receive 15% cashback on completion of their project (to a maximum value of £10,000).

To make sure businesses in your network don’t miss out, we’ve provided information you can share in your social media, website, newsletters and presentations in this update.

Your support not only helps Scottish businesses to cut costs and grow, but it will also greatly contribute to helping Scotland meet its landmark target of reaching net-zero emissions by 2045.
