We understand that when operating charities and third sector organisations, running costs need to be kept to a minimum.
We can help you to save money by providing free specialist advice, training, access to funding and suppliers, and in-person on-site support to help you cut your energy, water and raw material costs.
Free training workshops and lunchtime learning webinars provide in-depth support so that you can implement cost-saving actions successfully.
If you prefer, online training can help you learn new skills, enhance your CV and improve the resource efficiency of your organisation. For example, Green Champions consists of structured learning modules packed with tried-and-tested techniques and free tools and templates.
We have a range of online tools designed to help you target opportunities and implement cost-saving action, including the Savings Finder, Business Resource Centre, Green Town and the Construction Material Exchange.
Third sector organisations such as Falkirk Community Trust and Rowan have also taken advantage of our Resource Efficiency Pledge initiative to engage staff with the implementation of resource efficiency actions.
Free one-to-one support from our team of Implementation Advisors and technical specialists can help you to implement existing projects or conduct a site audit to help you identify areas where you can reduce your environmental impact and save on energy, water and raw materials. We can also help you to identify funding suitable for your organisation and project.
