About this Event              Event Link Here

The new climate targets set in the Climate Change Act will require significantly raised action, investment and planning to deliver across all sectors in Scotland.

Scotland’s approach to tackling climate emissions must be driven by a transformational Just Transition at a pace and scale that will meet Paris Agreement commitments. This includes our Recovery Plan for coronavirus, the revised Energy Strategy and the now delayed Climate Change Plan.

At this event you will hear from experts across a range of sectors including transport, energy and agriculture. There will be opportunities for discussion and Q&A as well as a chance to hear from MSPs and Just Transition Commissioners on their reflections.

The half-day conference will take place online using the Zoom platform with all the details to join sent ahead of the event to those registered.
