Round 2 of the Government's Sustainability Innovation Fund opened at the end of July and closes in September.
The Government launched a £200m initiative back in June to give grants to businesses which have been effected by Covid 19 to help keeping to drive forward new sustainability projects that might otherwise have been severely hampered (funding wise) by the pandemic.
All types of projects have been eligible, provided it promoted (amongst other things) decarbonisation, biodiversity or environmental sustainability and has potential to work across more than one sector.
In Round 2 there is up to £26m available with awards of between £50,000 and £100,000 to be made to businesses within the agriculture and fisheries industry. The project must be UK based and start by 1 November 2020 and last between 3 and 6 months.
The focus is still economic recovery, growth and opportunity for businesses affected by Covid-19, while understanding the impact of the opportunities on climate change and environmental sustainability.
