Scottish government launches green investment programme

Projects helping Scotland transition to net zero by 2045 can now apply to be included in a new green investment programme. Announced on Wednesday 9 October at the Ethical Finance 2019 conference in Edinburgh by First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, the Green Investment Portfolio will give local authorities, developers and third sector organisations the opportunity to pitch for large-scale investment to support projects reducing Scotland’s emissions in areas such as renewables, waste, transport and the circular economy. “Our aim is to take to market a £3bn portfolio of investable projects over the next three years,” Sturgeon added.
