Business & Investment

Sustainable Finance service

Sustainability Victoria offers a free finance facilitation service to all businesses, property owners, councils and community groups seeking to invest in energy efficiency and renewable energy.

In collaboration with the Sustainable Melbourne Fund, we can assist businesses with Environmental Upgrade Finance (EUF). An EUF is an agreement between a property owner, a bank and local government that helps tenants and building owners pay for energy efficiency building upgrades through their council rates.

The finance facilitation service is open to all Victorian businesses, not just those receiving support from a Sustainability Victoria grant.

Environmental Upgrade Finance

The Sustainable Finance service will identify Environmental Upgrade Finance opportunities for Victorian businesses aiming to reduce their energy costs and increase productivity through their own upgrade projects or through initiatives such as our energy assessment grants program.

Environmental Upgrade Finance can pay for upgrades that improve energy, water, and waste efficiency or increase renewable energy.

Your business case

The Sustainable Finance service will help you access the data, information and analysis expertise needed to assist you in developing your Environmental Upgrade Finance business case or accessing other financial products.

The service includes help with cash flow development, provides market intelligence of government subsidy schemes, potential financiers, technology suppliers and regulatory requirements.
