Supporting local environmental projects across Guernsey, Jersey and the Isle of Man.
In line with our environmental commitments and to foster positive energy within our island communities, we provide funding and support for local charities, initiatives, or projects that contribute to the betterment of the environment and the community.
We accept applications twice a year, with a maximum funding limit of £5,000 per application. These applications are then reviewed by our Sustainability Group and the successful applicants will be chosen by our expert team.
Who we are and our commitment
Islands Energy Group (IEG) is the owner and operator of gas distribution networks across the Isle of Man (Isle of Man Energy), Guernsey (Guernsey Energy) and Jersey (Island Energy). In addition to this, we are actively pursuing commercial opportunities to expand our reach beyond regulation. Our responsibility includes providing heating services to over 35,000 homes and businesses across the three islands, a privilege we deeply value.
Our commitment lies in accelerating the three islands towards a common goal of achieving Net Zero status by 2050. To achieve this, we aim to reduce our carbon footprint as a business and transition towards decarbonising the gas transported through our network. We recognise that our role in each island's community is crucial, and we cannot achieve our targets or help the islands reach their Net Zero aspirations without a coordinated approach that prioritises the needs of our customers, stakeholders, and employees.
Who is eligible to apply?
The fund is open to a variety of organisations such as charities, community groups, unincorporated associations, co-operatives, schools, social enterprises and amateur sports clubs, amongst others. Applicants must either be based or managed locally within the Bailiwick of Guernsey, Bailliwick of Jersey or the Isle of Man.
Please note that the fund does not cover salaries or management costs, year-end deficits or individual applications. We advise reading the terms and conditions located at the bottom of this page prior to submitting an application.
What kind of projects do we fund?
Our focus is on locally-based initiatives, charities, and projects that benefit the environment and the wider community. This includes events, initiatives, projects, and groups aligned with the four pillars of our Environmental Sustainability Strategy:
- Affordable and clean energy
- Climate action
- Healthy ecosystems
- Education, awareness and skills
We welcome applications that resonate with our brand and cause, and we are committed to supporting organisations that align with our sustainability goals.
