The Go Green Fund is a financial commitment from the Government of Saskatchewan to assist Saskatchewan's people, communities, non-government organizations and businesses address the province's most important environmental issues.

The Go Green Fund supports practical, cost-effective solutions delivered through innovative environmental technologies, processes and improved public understanding. Larger scale initiatives that demonstrate significant environmental benefit and those that have the potential for adoption and/or replication elsewhere in Saskatchewan will be favored.

"Ordinary course-of-business" activities are not eligible for funding.

The Go Green Fund will invest in results-based projects that contribute to the following objectives:

Reduction or avoidance of greenhouse gas emissions measured as tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent reduced, sequestered or avoided;

Conservation of water supplies measured as litres of water saved;

Maintenance or restoration of water quality to meet established standards measured as litres of water upgraded or safeguarded from its prior or estimated degraded status; Biodiversity conservation measured as hectares of land protected or under biodiversity management;

Reduction of waste measured as kilograms of waste reduced or diverted; and Improvement in the understanding and acceptance of the need to address environmental issues measured by testing the target group's understanding of relevant messages pre- and post- project. Projects in this area will have a measurable action component directly relating to one or more of the above mentioned objectives.

Past projects funded include wind energy, energy storage, geothermal and biomass projects.
