Event description

Description

2017 is proving to be a seminal year in Scotland’s transformation to a low carbon and sustainable future. Substantive climate change policy developments are underway, including:

  • A proposed new Climate Change Bill setting more ambitious greenhouse gas emission reduction targets.
  • The draft Energy Strategy including a vision for Scotland’s energy future until 2050
  • a raft of other proposals such as Scotland’s Energy Efficiency Programme, Local Heat and Energy Efficiency Strategies and Regulation of District Heating.
  • Publication of Scotland’s third Climate Change Plan, including emission pathways to 2032, expected 2018 following Parliamentary scrutiny earlier this year.

Public sector organisations and partners have a critical role in initiating, aligning and leading the demanding changes driven by the emerging climate change policy landscape. The SSN Conference 2017 is an opportunity to navigate this landscape and policy changes with network members, peers, partners and the Scottish Government to discuss and identify:

  • Where public sector action can enable broader and deeper impacts in line with national ambitions.
  • How to initiate and align collaborative action with partners and key stakeholders.
  • What is needed to drive strong public sector leadership and encourage engagement on shared delivery of this pressing agenda across Scotland.
