Carbon Literacy in Scotland

Scotland has set a target of net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2045. To achieve this target, communities, businesses and organisations across all sectors will need to play a significant part in the transition to a low carbon Scotland.

Carbon Literacy provides knowledge and skills around the climate crisis, and what they can do about it, helping individuals and organisations to play their part in Scotland’s drive for net-zero.
