Government Funds ‘Climate Ready’ Companies
Thursday, 14th August 2008 at 2:43 pm

The Rudd Government’s $75 million Climate Ready program is open for applications from Australian business.

Climate Ready will support Australian businesses developing new products, processes and services to tackle climate change by providing dollar-for-dollar support for research and development, proof-of-concept and early-stage commercialisation activities.

Applicants can apply for grants ranging from $50,000 to $5 million.

The Minister for Innovation, Industry, Science and Research, Senator Kim Carr says it is vital that the Australian Government work in partnership with innovative companies to address the challenge of climate change.

Senator Carr says innovative products and processes that help tackle global warming can also create high-wage, high-skill jobs for the future, which is in all our interests.

He says Australian industry has the creativity and drive to deliver to world markets in this area.

Applications for grants are invited for any company developing innovative solutions to address climate change impacts.
Senator Carr says a broad range of applications are expected in areas as diverse as water recycling, waste recovery, small scale renewable energy technologies, green building materials, and other products, processes or services to monitor emissions or reduce energy use.

Australian businesses can also apply for grants involving enabling technologies like nanotechnology and biotechnology that address the effects of climate change on people and the environment.
