Green Business Fife and Fife Council are looking to engage with businesses as part of a pilot project to inform how the council prepares for future energy and heat developments across Fife.
A new business charter that aims to promote local jobs, apprenticeships and payment of the living wage has been launched.
The charter, which also sets out how Fife Council will support the region’s businesses, outlines the part businesses can play in making sure the benefits of Fife’s economic growth are shared by all.

As the political negotiations continue many businesses are delaying Brexit readiness until everything is sorted out.
However, the problem with this 'wait and see' approach is that some business processes will change at the end of March regardless of Brexit. While other issues will demand immediate attention well before the 29 March.
The business risks from not being prepared far outweigh the management time and costs from taking action now.
A project to revitalise the River Leven in Fife as a great regional asset has received more than £300,000 in funding.
