climtechangeplanThe Scottish Government has published a draft Climate Change Plan which contains detailed proposals to achieve a 66% reduction in Scotland’s greenhouse gas emissions.

Cabinet Secretary for Environment, Climate Change and Land Reform Roseanna Cunningham has said the Scottish Government’s draft Climate Change Plan demonstrates “a new level of ambition” in its work to build a prosperous low carbon economy and a fairer, healthier Scotland.

Scotland has already exceeded its 2020 climate change target by achieving a 42% reduction in emissions six years early. The draft Climate Change Plan raises ambitions higher still by setting out how Scotland can reduce emissions by 66% by 2032.

In response to the draft Climate Change Plan Tom Ballantine, Chair of Stop Climate Chaos Scotland said;

“This new plan paints an attractive vision of the kind of low-carbon society we will be living in in 15 years’ time – a cleaner, healthier, more prosperous Scotland.  However, we have serious concerns about the plan’s lack of new actions to deliver this vision.”



scotsocentstrat_headerThe Scottish Government recently published a new ten-year national social enterprise strategy – Scotland’s Social Enterprise Strategy 2016-2026. The strategy sets out the shared ambitions for social enterprise in Scotland, jointly developed with the sector and it provides a framework for action over the next decade.

Social enterprise models inclusive growth and this strategy will support the aim of sustainable economic growth, tackling inequalities and building a fairer Scotland.

This strategy will build on the supportive ecosystem, developed over the previous decade, and will cement Scotland’s reputation as world-leading and the best place to start and grow a social enterprise.

The strategy focuses on three main priorities:

  1. Stimulating social enterprise
  2. Developing stronger organisations
  3. Realising market opportunities

These will be developed into a series of action plans spanning the decade, the first of which will be published in 2017.
