Our net zero ambitions
Supporting the global commitment to tackle climate change, the Scottish Government has set ambitious, but necessary, targets to reach net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2045 (Scottish Government website).
Climate action has also been identified as a priority within the national tourism strategy Scotland Outlook 2030 (Scottish Tourism Alliance website) and the Scottish Government’s National Strategy for Economic Transformation (Scottish Government website).
VisitScotland is committed to taking bold action and championing change. We were the first national tourism organisation to join Tourism Declares and declare a Climate Emergency. We were also on the drafting committee and a founding signatory of the Glasgow Declaration for Climate Action in Tourism, which is published on the One Planet network website.
