Clean Growth

We want your help to shape Scotland’s Clean Growth future as we kick off Phase 2 of our Clean Growth Leadership Group project.

We’re looking beyond the immediate economic challenges of the current crisis towards the economic opportunities of our journey to Net Zero.

We’ll publish a report before the end of 2020 which highlights Scotland’s key economic opportunities for Clean Growth – and what we need to do to maximise them.

But we need your help!

Our questions

What do you think are Scotland’s key Clean Growth opportunities? Which investments, regulations or interventions would help your business, organisation, community or sector to decarbonise and grow sustainably?

We’re looking at 7 key themes – and asking 7 key questions – in Phase 2:

  • PEOPLE: How can Scotland launch a Green Skills Revolution which helps our workforce to reskill and upskill to compete for and thrive in the green jobs of the future?
  • PLACE: How can Scotland transform our communities to make them more sustainable, more equal and more resilient?
  • CONNECTIVITY: How can Scotland become better connected domestically and globally as a large country on the geographic periphery of Europe?
  • ENERGY: How can Scotland test, develop and export Net Zero technological innovations to remain a global leader in the transition to green energy?
  • INDUSTRY: How can Scotland decarbonise our industries to boost sustainability, increase competitiveness and attract inward investment?
  • NATURE: How can Scotland protect our natural environment and reverse biodiversity loss to help us to sustainably harness our land, sea and air?
  • FINANCE: How can Scotland stimulate private sector investment in green infrastructure and nature-based solutions to fund the transition to Net Zero?
