400 jobs in first Climate Ready round

Thirty-two environmental projects comprising 400 skilled workers have received funding from the first round of the Federal Government’s Climate Ready program. Minister for Innovation, Industry, Science and Research Senator Kim Carr offered $26.6 million in funds to projects ranging from wind turbine production to water saving solutions.

“Not only have these 32 innovative projects identified ways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, but each will help boost the economy in the midst of the global financial crisis,” said Carr. “Through Climate Ready, innovative companies have an opportunity to create new industries by turning good ideas into commercial reality.”

The government’s Clean Business Australia initiative, of which Climate Ready is part, will offer $240 million over four years to innovative projects with an energy and water-efficiency focus.
