University of the West of Scotland is leading a project to deliver support and training to enable organisations across South Ayrshire to meet the national Net Zero goals, and position South Ayrshire as a national leader in green working practices.
Thirty Participating organisations will access fully funded consultancy and training to support plans for decarbonisation and improved sustainability. These individuals will become ‘Carbon Champions’ and skilled auditors, able to recognise challenges and opportunities for improvement in their own organisations, and influence change.
The project is funded by the National Community Renewal Fund and is delivered by University of the West of Scotland, in partnership with South Ayrshire Council and with the support of Ayrshire Chamber of Commerce, Ayrshire College and Entrepreneurial Scotland.
The UK Community Renewal Fund is a UK Government programme for 2021/22. This aims to support people and communities most in need across the UK to pilot programmes and new approaches to prepare for the UK Shared Prosperity Fund. It invests in skills, community and place, local business, and supporting people into employment.
