Fund description:

Devon County Council has launched the Green Innovation Fund as part of its programme of recovery to help the county build back better after the COVID pandemic. Businesses, charities and public-sector organisations can apply for grants up to £200,000 for projects that develop innovative new ideas that help to reduce our environmental impact.

The low carbon sector and the development of new products, services, and technologies which help us reach Net Zero provide the county with great avenues for economic growth, job creation, and skills placement which don’t come at the expense of our environment. By innovating and improving existing practices, we can establish Devon’s reputation as a leader in the environmental sector, generate prosperity on a local level, and secure the future of the planet for generations to come.
