Explore how climate change affects the historic environment and what we’re doing to help limit the impact.
Our historic environment is on the front line of climate change. We need to take significant and urgent global climate action now to protect our past for the future.
Scotland has declared a climate emergency and our historic environment has unique potential to inspire climate action, as set out in this action plan.
At this time of climate emergency, get involved in the international climate change conference, COP26.
Scotland has committed to a green recovery and our historic environment can make a vital contribution to our recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic and our transition to net zero and a climate resilient society.
Our staffed Historic Scotland properties hold an impressive 37 Green Tourism gold awards and 31 silver awards.
