Net Zero

Make it your business.

As we all race to tackle the climate crisis, reducing carbon emissions and operating at net zero is the future – for our planet, and for your business.

Scotland has set an ambitious target, to become net zero by 2045, five years ahead of the rest of the UK. The economic opportunities available to businesses during this transition are enormous: we want to help Scottish businesses innovate at home and then export their solutions to the rest of the world.

It may seem overwhelming, but we're here to help.

There's a wide range of support, guidance and funding to all businesses looking to start or progress their own journey to net zero and we've brought it all together in one place. Whether you want advice on how to become more energy efficient, or are looking for funding to help you, you'll find the information you need below to help identify ways your business can reduce its impact on the planet.

We all need to take action now.

What We're Doing

The need to make sustainable changes is more pressing now than ever, in the light of the pandemic. The Scottish Government is committed to delivering a green recovery – this means our economic recovery from COVID-19 will help us toward net zero emissions in a way that is just, and that maximises the opportunities to deliver a thriving, sustainable economy.

Our recent Climate Change Plan update which was published in December 2020 is a strategic document on our green recovery from Covid-19.
