There is some information below about a funding opportunity
The criteria are quite specific but it may be of interest. Green Bridge Fund A £20m funding programme to help SME supply chain companies develop, grow and diversify their businesses within the green sector in the West Midlands has launched. The Green Bridge Supply Chain Programme, which is being run by Birmingham City Council, is available to businesses in The Marches area (Telford & Wrekin, Shropshire and Herefordshire) and is funded through the Governments Regional Growth Fund. The scheme is aimed at companies operating within the green sector or seeking to diversify or set up within this area, such as renewable energy, low carbon, building technologies, manufacturing…, transport and logistics.
Grant support of between £20,000 and £100,000 (which will need to be match funded) is available to develop new markets, new products, new processes, skills development and purchase of capital equipment and premises refurbishment. The fund does expect that as a result jobs will be created and sustained for a minimum of 3 years. The second round of funding has now opened and the deadline for submissions is 13th September with further funding rounds operating to the end of the year. As a department (Telford and Wrekin Council) we will be able to support you in this process by offering guidance for completion of applications. A competition brief is available at www.birmingham.gov.uk/greenbridge
