CBFS Funding Announcement, 28th March 2019

Match-funded by the Culture & Business Fund Scotland (CBFS) programme, Creative Carbon Scotland has announced a new partnership with renewable energy supplier Good Energy to develop knowledge, resources and green energy opportunities for the Scottish Green Arts community.

Carl Watt, Head of Programmes at Arts & Business Scotland, said:

“Via match-funding from the Culture & Business Fund Scotland, we’re delighted to be supporting Creative Carbon Scotland’s partnership with Good Energy. Like all sectors of the economy, the cultural sector needs to be doing what it can to help reduce Scotland’s carbon footprint. With that in mind, this partnership aims to share the knowledge cultural organisations throughout Scotland need to make more informed decisions about their energy use and supply.”
