ERDF branding support and guidelines
We offer support and guidance to help Climate Challenge Fund Grant Recipients also awarded funding from the European Regional Development Fund to meet branding and promotional requirements.
In addition to using the Climate Challenge Fund and Greener Scotland logos, Climate Challenge Fund (CCF) Grant Recipients, who are also receiving funding from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) must acknowledge this on their website and in a variety of other materials produced for publicity, promotion and recruitment when appropriate. This should include correct use of the Greener Scotland and Climate Challenge Fund logos, plus the ERDF logo and additional explanatory text and weblinks when appropriate.
To assist Grant Recipients in meeting all the branding and publicity requirements we have produced a step-by-step guide summary guide which also includes links to downloadable logos, templates, press releases and suggested text. The Grant Recipient should retain copies of all the above material produced, in preparation for an audit.
If the above steps are not followed the Grant Recipient may be required to repay the ERDF funding to the Scottish Government.
CCF Grant Recipients in receipt of ERDF Funding must also forward a copy of each item of material they produce to their Development Officer at Keep Scotland Beautiful. This material must be provided before any funds are claimed for the activity.
