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.
Their vision is for a clean, green, sustainable Scotland and they work with people, communities and organisations to help combat climate change, reduce litter and waste, restore nature and biodiversity, and improve places. They aim to inspire changes in behaviour to improve our environment, the quality of people’s lives, their wellbeing and the places that they care for.
Keep Scotland Beautiful is a training organisation with a wide portfolio across a number of environmental issues. Their Carbon Literacy Project certified training (Climate Emergency Training) helps businesses, organisations and individuals across Scotland to understand the Climate Emergency and respond to the risks, responsibilities and opportunities ahead.

Climate Ready Classrooms supports young peoples’ call for climate action and works in partnership with their schools and communities to act on climate change.
The course, delivered by Keep Scotland Beautiful, funded by the Scottish Government and accredited by The Carbon Literacy Project, provides a one-day Carbon Literacy training course tailored specifically towards young people as well as their teachers, headteachers, and support staff. It enables them to develop their knowledge of climate change, its causes and effects, and how to live more sustainably both at home, at school and within their local area.
“This brilliant experience has inspired me to change/alter my action to lower my carbon footprint and to spread awareness among my peers to hopefully inspire them to take action just like me. I highly recommend anyone who is given the opportunity to take part in Climate Ready Classrooms to do so, so you can be inspired just like I have.” – Climate Ready Classrooms participant, Lornshill Academy, Clackmannanshire.
Participants receive an accredited certificate of Carbon Literacy, which can be used to support applications for an Eco-Schools Scotland Green Flag. Learn more about the Climate Ready Classroom programme for secondary schools.
