A guide to your free support services

Do you want to improve your business’ sustainability and reduce your business costs? Don’t know where to start? Home Energy Scotland is organising a free half-day event to showcase the support services available to help businesses improve their environmental performance and save money, including sustainable transport; energy, waste and water saving advice; and engaging staff on efficiency at home.

There are many business benefits to improved sustainability including cost savings, enhanced competitiveness, improved reputation and staff retention. The event will help you to identify the priority areas relevant to your business and provide access to free support and funding streams to get started.

This event is open to businesses of all sizes and sectors and will finish with a networking lunch, allowing you to connect directly with the Home Energy Scotland and Resource Efficient Scotland support services, engage with other local businesses and speak to organisations who have successfully implemented sustainability measures.
