Dr Trebeck has been appointed to Scottish Government’s Sustainable Renewal Advisory Group,
chaired by Environment and Climate Change Secretary Roseanna
Cunninghame. It has been tasked with identifying opportunities to embed
sustainability in Scotland’s recovery from Covid-19 and with exploring
the new challenges and opportunities we face in achieving a 75%
reduction in emissions within a decade.

Ms. Cunninghame said: “In
anticipation of a ‘new normal’, we have a chance to re-imagine the
Scotland around us, and to begin building a greener, fairer and more
equal society and economy. Our starting point has most definitely
changed but our ambitions need not and I remain deeply committed to our
ambition to end Scotland’s contribution to climate change by 2045.”
