Programme for Government welcomed - 2022
Keep Scotland Beautiful recognises the significant financial challenges which have dominated the Programme for Government announced on 06 September 2022. The cost-of-living crisis has profound implications for individuals, communities, and organisations. Set against these challenges we welcome the commitment outlined to deliver a Deposit Return Scheme, Circular Economy Bill, and the publication of the National and Litter and Flytipping strategy which we have called for many years.
We look forward to looking more closely at the detail of the Programme for Government and to working with the Scottish Government, and its agencies to deliver programmes and activities that will help the country achieve its Net Zero and Nature Restoration Ambitions through a just transition, improve the fabric of the communities where people live and work and help turn the tide on the significant issues connected with climate change, nature decline, litter and waste.
Additionally, we also welcome SCVO’s position on the need to provide stable funding and inflation matching funding for the voluntary sector to enable it to continue to deliver across key policy areas.
