Islands Green Recovery Programme

Through its newly launched Islands Green Recovery Programme, the Scottish Government will invest £2million in locally-led green projects to support economic recovery from the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. 

Split into four strands and delivered by four partners, the programme will support island communities and businesses to take forward a range of capital projects:

Inspiring Scotland: £900,000 available for capital expenditure projects that contribute to green recovery and carbon emission reductions.  The deadline for applying is 21 October.  Further details here.

Highlands & Islands Enterprise:  £500,000 to support green economic recovery.

Zero Waste Scotland: £300,000 to support island retailers and businesses to introduce packaging free shops. Further details here.

Energy Savings Trust: £300,000 to support carbon neutral initiatives.
