Important information

You must complete a carbon footprint calculation before you apply.

Ideally the fund will support changes to reduce emissions identified within scope 3 of the Green House Gas protocol. Scope 3 emissions include all emissions produced not just by a company itself, but which it is indirectly responsible for - for example, emissions produced when buying products from its suppliers, or when its customers use its products.
