Let’s act on climate change

Scotland’s Climate Week 2023 will run from 25 September to 1 October. The focus is on taking action in the areas that can make the most difference.

Scotland's Climate Week is an annual event that encourages individuals, communities and businesses to come together to show our support for tackling the climate emergency.

It’s also an opportunity to share success stories which can inspire others to take action to help Scotland reach net zero by 2045. National and local government, businesses and organisations, communities, families and individuals are all part of this effort.

This Climate Week is about us all taking action in the areas that have the most impact and sharing success stories with colleagues, family, friends and our communities using #ScotClimateWeek.

 

In Scotland, travel and heating are the two biggest contributors to emissions by individuals. So, making changes to the way we travel and heat our homes and businesses could make a big difference to climate change. Around one fifth of greenhouse gas emissions come from heating our homes and workplaces.

Actions like using our cars less or improving our heating are not only good for the planet but can help you to save money.
