Scottish Gas Club & Community Net Zero Fund
Scottish Rugby has partnered with Scottish Gas to help the rugby community across Scotland reduce their energy bills and carbon footprint.
The partnership is set to act as a catalyst for all communities to start transforming their buildings into healthier, more comfortable, more resilient places to work and play on the journey to zero-emissions.
As part of the landmark deal, over 130 clubs are set to benefit from £2m of support through the Club & Community Net Zero Fund to help give clubs a lift with energy bills and reduce energy consumption by over 50%*.
Clubs are now invited to express their interest in receiving free tailored energy efficiency advice and access grants from the fund to help pay for improvements.
It’s not just your club that will benefit!
Once your club has undertaken the Scottish Gas survey and accessed support, Scottish Gas will follow up by hosting a community workshop to support local members of the club and community reduce their energy costs at home. The partnership aims to engage communities across Scotland to deliver on the Scottish Government’s net zero ambitions for 2045.
