The FIDC Green Business Programme has been established to support the Falkland Islands’ aspirations as a community to be more environmentally focussed, and enable sustainable business practices, developing a green economy. It is linked to the Falkland Islands Chamber of Commerce Climate Pledge.
FIDC’s new energy audit service for businesses was successfully launched in October 2022 and currently runs annually with a visiting consultant.
An energy audit is an inspection survey that enables the full picture of a building’s energy use to be better understood, allowing for inefficiencies to be identified and creating a report focussing on how businesses can reduce their energy consumption and associated costs.
FIDC are currently partnering with FIG to develop EV charging infrastructure network solutions, having commissioned a feasibility study in 2022.
FIDC continues to partner with FIG and other stakeholders in environmentally focused feasibility studies and to scope out pilot projects under the Green Business Programme.
FIDC is exploring opportunities to facilitate sustainability training for Falkland Islands businesses.
Development grant funding is available for businesses to become more environmentally sustainable.
