SCOTLAND POISED TO LEAD THE UK’S GREEN ECONOMY

Please join our live broadcast: By the side of Scottish Business: Building a Sustainable Future Together, taking place Tuesday 5 October 2021, 10:30am – 12:00 noon.

We all have an important part to play in providing leadership, influencing change and collaborating with others across different sectors to help ensure a fairer and better future for Scotland.

Our recent (Sept ‘21) UK Green Growth Index developed by Oxford Economics explores how well placed the regions across the UK are to capitalise on the opportunities for the green economy. Scotland has been identified as the region that is best placed to lead the green revolution as the UK seeks to recover from the pandemic.

We recognise that the landscape differs dramatically from business-to-business who are at different stages of their sustainability journey, therefore businesses need to be thinking how they can achieve their transition in a way that is fair and equitable for all throughout their supply chains. It’s essential that we think and act as a collective to deliver meaningful change.

And with COP26 (United Nations Climate Change Conference) just around the corner, we know there is an urgent need to accelerate our efforts by taking full advantage of the green growth opportunity, and to create more awareness of green finance options to help ensure a more sustainable future.

You’ll hear from Scottish industry and business leaders who will share their views and experience on their sustainability journey, as well as giving practical guidance and direction.

Register now and get your free download of the UK Green Growth Index.

We look forward to welcoming you at the event.
