For the last five years, the Scottish Government’s Resource Efficient Scotland programme has been helping small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) across Scotland to save resources and money. Independent evaluation has shown that the programme’s free expertise, interest-free loans and access to grants have uncovered over £54 million worth of savings for businesses – a whopping 24% energy saving per business on average.

Now, Dumfries and Galloway Business Gateway is working with Resource Efficient Scotland to help local SMEs get a cut of these savings too.

Join this special briefing and you will:

  • learn how you can help your business beat rising energy, water and waste costs
  • find out about the latest loans and grants that are available to help your business – including interest-free loans of between £1,000 and £100,000
  • learn about the fully funded, expert consultancy advice and support available too
  • understand how you can grow a greener, more competitive business
  • hear from businesses that have already acted, what they did and how they have benefited
  • network with other local businesses and helpful suppliers


Who should attend?

This event is a must for managers, directors and owners of SMEs who are responsible for business improvement, competitiveness and sustainability.

Limited spaces:

Due to the popularity of Resource Efficient Scotland events, places are limited to two people per organisation. Additional colleagues wishing to attend may submit a booking and, if space permits, will be able to join the training.

Drop in clinic (10:00 – 12:30):

Can’t make the briefing? Advisers from Resource Efficient Scotland and Dumfries and Galloway Business Gateway will be running an informal drop in clinic after the briefing. This is an informal session and no appointments are necessary – just drop in, speak to a friendly adviser, and find out how your business can quickly slash its energy, water and waste bills.
