Climate Challenge Fund (CCF) guidance and resources for waste projects.

Defining outcomes

All Stage Two applicants should be able to define the outcomes of their project, the activities that will achieve these outcomes and how to monitor the progress that their project is making.

The Stage Two Guidance contains detailed information on all the above in section 2.4, however projects involving waste should find pages one and two of the worked example here useful.

Estimating carbon emissions

To help applicants estimate the carbon emissions (CO2e) savings of their CCF project we have produced the Carbon Estimator.  It has sections to help applicants estimate CO2e savings for a number of activities for each project theme, so that they can establish what initiatives will be likely make the largest savings.

The Carbon Estimator is available here and has full instructions on how to use it. Projects involving waste should find page three of the worked example here useful.

Partners and third-party resources

Your Development Officer will outline key organisations you should work with to plan and deliver your project. They will also outline third party resources that will prove helpful.

You can see a summary of partners and third-party support for CCF waste projects here, but you should also consult other themes your project will cover

Case studies

If you are looking for inspiration, might also find it useful to consult case studies of previously funded CCF waste projects.

Video guide and case studies

If you are looking for inspiration, might also find it useful to watch our Reuse and Repair video guide and consult case studies of previously funded CCF projects that have tackled waste.


Reuse and repair

Our 'reuse and repair' guide provides advice and support for community-led organisations planning a Climate Challenge Fund project to tackle waste. Although the information is targeted at Climate Challenge Fund projects, it should be useful for all.
