Find out more about Step Up to Net Zero and how it can support businesses in their journey to net zero and enable people to gain work experience and employment. This project is fully funded by Glasgow City Council.

What is Step Up to Net Zero?

Step Up to Net Zero supports Glasgow SMEs in their efforts to reach net zero by funding four-month work placements who will help the business take action towards net zero and circular goals.

This is delivered by Glasgow Chamber of Commerce and fully funded by Glasgow City Council, to reach the city’s net zero ambitions and provides employability support for Glasgow’s workforce.

The net zero transition offers a significant opportunity to develop Scotland’s future economy and, given Glasgow’s target to become net zero by 2030, businesses will play a key part in meeting this goal. To do so, Glasgow businesses must adapt and innovate and Step Up to Net Zero offers the chance for businesses to kickstart their journey.
