What is SMEEF?
The Scottish Marine Environmental Enhancement Fund (SMEEF) is an innovative approach to funding marine and coastal restoration. Users (and enthusiasts) of Scottish waters can now choose to voluntarily re-invest in the health and biodiversity of our seas by contributing to the Fund which is allocated on a competitive basis to marine projects in Scotland.
The unique placement of the Fund, which is managed by a Steering Group of the Scottish Government, Crown Estate Scotland and NatureScot, provides exceptional insight and assures robust governance and transparency.
SMEEF has already attracted the support and commitment of the offshore renewable energy sector. The Fund recently ran its first grant round and decisions are expected early in September 2022.
If you have a grant enquiry please email us at email@example.com.
SMEEF contributes to delivering the outcomes in the Scottish Government’s Blue Economy Vision. It adheres to the Principles for Responsible Investment in Natural Capital and is one of the nine pillars of the Nature Conservation £1 Billion Challenge and Route Map. SMEEF will also assist with the National Strategy for Economic Transition.
