Glasgow City Council Green Business Grant

Support provided by Glasgow City Council

What does this involve?

The Glasgow City Council Green Business Grant will help businesses in Glasgow address both the cost of living and climate crises through measures such as energy efficiency, renewables, active travel and waste management.

The Green Business Grant is a non-repayable grant of up to £10,000, which will cover up to 50% of the total cost of a project. Projects can include anything that helps businesses reduce their energy bills and make progress towards achieving net zero carbon emissions.

Am I eligible?

To be eligible for the grant, your business must:

  • be a small or medium-sized enterprise (as defined in the Companies Act 2006)
  • have been trading for at least 6 months
  • own its own premises in Glasgow or have written permission from your landlord to make changes to the premises and seek planning permissions from Glasgow City Council Planning Division to implement the works detailed in your application
  • have a Glasgow postcode and pay non-domestic rates in Glasgow
  • be headquartered in Glasgow

Premises of an organisation based outside Glasgow will not be considered. Businesses whose main base is within the city boundary cannot use the grant to improve premises or create jobs outside Glasgow.

Businesses that are owned by another business with more than a 25% stake are not eligible.

What does this cost?

The grant will cover up to 50% of the total cost of a project, to a maximum of £10,000. Businesses must be prepared to cover the rest of the cost from other sources.

Who is this for?

Glasgow businesses in any sector.

How long does this take?

The grant will close to new applications on 30 June 2023 or when the budget is fully allocated, whichever is earlier.

All projects must be completed by 31 December 2023.

You will be contacted within 10 working days of submitting your completed online application.
