Green Business Loan Scheme launches

Monday 6 March 2023

The Development Bank of Wales have launched the Green Business Loan Scheme, which will help businesses become more environmentally conscious.

The Green Business Loan Scheme works to provide businesses across Wales with tailored support packages that help to address pressures that business face, as well as the competing priorities for resource and investment. Key barriers such as knowing where and how to invest, being time poor and having the necessary finance restricts businesses from taking positive action.

As part of the loan scheme, businesses will get:

  • Access to fully and part-funded consultancy support that helps them understand their own path to decarbonisation
  • Discounted fixed interest rates on green business loans for energy efficiency measures and low carbon heat installations
  • Patient capital, with upfront capital repayment holidays and a loan term linked to project payback

In order to eligible, businesses must be based in Wales, must have been trading for at least two years and have one set of filed annual accounts and can be a limited company, sole trader or partnership.

The Development Bank of Wales puts Wales’s potential at the heart of its decision-making.

It funds business which it thinks will benefit Wales and its people – the ones that are more than a good business model or a great idea. It finances responsible businesses – those with strong social, ethical and environmental standards, as well as real commercial promise.

By providing sustainable, effective finance, where options have seemed limited, it brings ambitions to life and fuels possibilities for people, businesses and communities in Wales and beyond.
