Scotland has declared a climate emergency and our historic environment has unique potential to inspire climate action.

In this action plan for 2020-25, we have set out how we plan to transform the way we operate in response to the growing climate emergency. It builds on progress we have already made, but with a step-change increase in ambition and urgency. 

The actions in our plan focus on:

  • how we will tackle the causes of the climate crisis and respond to the impacts
  • changes in the way we protect and operate some of Scotland’s most recognisable places and landmarks and the landscapes and infrastructure around them
  • sharing knowledge, building resilience, and investing in sustainability to support others to address the climate emergency

Find out more about our work on climate change and how we're putting our plan into action.
