Greening of Scotch Whisky
Needless to say, the greening does not refer to the colour of whisky.
The Green agenda has received endorsement from Scotland’s world famous distilleries who are aiming to cut their emissions by almost half a million tons of CO2 every year.
The achievement has been facilitated by the new Green Distilling Fund announced in the March 2020 budget.
Greening distillery operations in Scotland and across the rest of the UK will help contribute towards its legally-binding target of reaching net-zero emissions by 2050. The funding comes as the UK government continues to ramp up its green economic recovery from Coronavirus ahead of hosting the UN Climate Change talks (COP26) in November next year.
All businesses and home owners should be alert to funding that is likely to become available as the imperative to tackle climate change kicks-in over the coming years.
For example, from September, a New Green Homes Grant will provide vouchers worth up to £5,000 towards the cost of energy efficient improvements for homeowners in England.
