“Climate and nature have been in a marriage for more than three billion years. Major shifts in climate and nature are not unusual in the geological record, but, the rate of the current shift is both unprecedented and phenomenal. By working with nature we can help moderate the changing climate – and through a more stable climate, we can sustain a far healthier and more resilient environment.”
This document frames our refreshed approach to climate change. NatureScot has delivered climate change actions for many years, but in responding to the climate emergency, our Commitments focus on expanded and new areas of activity. Within the six themes in this document we introduce key examples of that work.
