Decarbonising Scotland | Climate Emergency Series

Scotland’s target of net-zero emissions by 2045 puts us ahead of the rest of the UK and at the forefront of thought leadership and policy direction. The December update to the Scottish Government’s Climate Change Plan also set out over 100 new policies and proposals to support Scotland’s green recovery and help deliver a just transition to net zero. So how can we work together to decarbonise Scotland?

With help from the public, private and third sectors, we’re in the position to achieve the Government’s emission reduction targets and lead by example in combating climate change.

Decarbonising Scotland

Building on the successful launch of our Climate Emergency series, Decarbonising Scotland championed the industry-leading work being done in Scotland, looking at international best-practice and how we can bridge any implementation gaps.

This event is now available on-demand. Access the video now to learn more about best practice and how we can work together, across borders and sectors, to deliver climate resilience through decarbonising our economy and our society.

This event was part of Holyrood’s Climate Emergency Series, held in the run up to COP26. The series engages key decision-makers and stakeholders in discussions about how Scotland can secure a net-zero through a more inclusive and sustainable recovery from the COVID-19 crisis.
