Scottish Government has launched a consultation focused on the role of public sector bodies in ending Scotland’s contribution to climate change.
The consultation also asks how the Public Sector Climate Change Reporting Duties should be revised to support this contribution, and how Scottish Government and the wider public sector can work together to make a change in delivery.
Scottish Government wants to hear from public bodies, organisations and individuals about what they think public sector bodies should be doing to tackle climate change.
The Big Climate Conversation, which the consultation is part of, aims to:
- build an open, transparent and collaborative, whole-Scotland approach to reducing emissions
- identify and share ideas about opportunities, what works, barriers to action and what needs to be done differently
- generate ideas for the update to the Climate Change Plan
This consultation, and other work from the Big Climate Conversation, will be used to inform the Climate Change Plan update, and will inform plans to bring forward secondary legislation that alter the details of the public sector climate change reporting duties.
The deadline for responses is Wednesday 4th December.
