Your charity for Scotland’s environment

Transport

The Climate Challenge Fund (CCF) supports projects that aim to reduce carbon emissions in this area by encouraging members of their community to change their mode of transport to a lower carbon option. This means moving people away from traveling alone in cars to fuel efficient driving, lower emissions vehicles, lift sharing, public transport, or active travel like cycling and walking. Some projects focus on reducing the need to travel in the first place.
