Scotland: A Net Zero Nation

In the global effort to fight climate change Scotland has set an ambitious target to become 'Net Zero' by 2045. This means the amount of greenhouse gas emissions we put into the atmosphere and the amount we're able to take out will add up to zero. By working together, supporting each other and all getting involved – government, organisations and individuals alike – we'll tackle climate change and reach our net zero target together.
