The Climate Action Voucher is available to eligible companies to access up to 2 days independent technical or advisory services support related to the current and future operations of their business. The voucher may be used to obtain services from approved providers (directory link available below).
The objective of the Climate Action voucher is to help companies prepare a plan for the low carbon, more resource efficient economy of the future, whether a company is starting out on their green transformation journey or have already started. Scientific evidence shows that we must act now to limit global warming to 1.5°C to avoid the catastrophic consequences of climate change. This translates to halving greenhouse gas emissions every decade starting now to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050.
It is expected that outcomes of this short assignment will lead to further training/technical feasibility/innovation/capital projects, i.e. it will start companies on a journey of activities.
