SHELL SPRINGBOARD AWARDS - 2016 AWARDS NOW OPEN TO APPLICATION (deadline 20 November 2015)
The Shell Springboard Awards is designed to provide a financial boost to innovative, low carbon initiatives from across the UK. The objective is to encourage companies to see climate change responsibilities as more than compliance and cost.
This year funding of £350,000 is available, with individual awards of up to £150,000 for small businesses with innovative, commercially viable ideas that will reduce carbon emissions.
Successful applicants will be shortlisted for two regional finals, meeting judging panels in Edinburgh and Cambridge in February 2016.
At each event, three regional winners will be awarded funding of £40,000 each. These six regional winners will then go forward to the national final, which will be held in London in March 2016.
At this showpiece event, one business will be crowned the overall national winner of Shell Springboard 2016. This business will then receive additional funding of £110,000 – meaning that the overall national winner of Shell Springboard 2016 will receive a total of £150,000 to scale up its low-carbon innovation.
Applications are accepted from sole traders, partnerships, limited companies or community interest companies (including government or university spin-outs) that operate in the UK.
Businesses must have been established for a minimum of three months and have less than 250 employees.
All applications must be made via a form on the Shell Springboard website.
The deadline for receipt of applications for the 2016 Awards is Friday 20 November 2015.
