Climate Ready open for applications

Senator Kim Carr, Minister for Innovation, Industry, Science and Research, announced the $75 million Climate Ready program to support Australian businesses developing climate change solutions is open for applications.

Climate Ready will support those 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.

“It is vital that the Australian Government work in partnership with our innovative companies to address the challenge of climate change,” Senator Carr said.

“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.

“A huge global market is developing for clean and green technologies. Australian industry has the creativity and drive to deliver to world markets in this area,” he said.

Senator Carr said that applications for grants are welcome for any company developing innovative solutions to address climate change impacts.

“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,” he said.

“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.
