Figures from Zero Waste Scotland show small and medium-sized enterprises in Scotland waste around £19,000 on average each year that could have been avoided simply by making energy efficiency improvements. So the Scottish Government is now offering interest-free, unsecured loans to businesses to help them to save money by reducing energy use. Loans of up to £100,000 per-SME are available to help them make positive efficiency changes, subsequently saving themselves money by reducing waste. Examples include installing LED lighting, better insulation, boiler upgrades and renewable technologies, and can range in scale and cost with unsecured funding of £1,000 to £100,000 available.
