We can help your organisation learn how the Climate Emergency relates to Scotland's energy sector and how to respond effectively.

The progress made so far in decarbonising Scotland's energy sector has been one of the success stories for reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

But there's still plenty of action required to ensure we reach our net zero targets for energy in a fair way, and that organisations and people are prepared for the transition.

And with energy efficiency measures, battery storage and renewables presenting opportunities to reduce energy prices and increase security of supply, there are many co-benefits from moving to greener energy.

Developed in collaboration with energy-sector professionals, find out more below how our Accredited Climate Emergency Training for Scotland's Energy Sector can help you understand Climate Emergency and respond effectively.
