Green Business Loan Scheme

The Green Business Loan Scheme is delivered in partnership with the Development Bank of Wales to help Welsh business go green. 

The scheme provides:

  • Access to fully funded and part funded consultancy support that helps businesses understand their own path to decarbonisation 
  • Discounted fixed interest rates for energy efficiency measures and low carbon heat installations 
  • Patient capital, with upfront capital repayment holidays and a loan term linked to project payback

We all have a responsibility to tackle climate change and with a volatile energy market, there's never been a better time to invest to save and make a positive change towards a greener future. 

Business Wales - Consultancy support

There are two different elements of consultancy support offered.

Fully funded consultancy support

Our Resource Efficiency team are ready to work with your business to identify energy saving opportunities and develop a business specific report highlighting next step recommendations. 

If you would like to get in touch please fill out this contact form and the team will be in touch. 

Part funded consultancy support

Alternatively you may require a deeper dive look at your energy saving and decarbonisation opportunities and wish to develop a longer-term plan of action. The Green Business Loan Scheme will support you in the engagement of an independent consultant to undertake an Energy Audit by providing 50% of the costs.
