The transition to Net Zero has the potential to impact many aspects of daily living in Scotland. In particular, consideration will need to be given to the impact on the type of jobs available, the training and skills required amongst the workforce and potential for new and exciting economic opportunities.
-Do you work in the Agriculture & Land Use, Transport or Construction & Built Environment sectors and have views on how the transition to Net Zero should be achieved?
-Would you like the opportunity to help shape government policy making as priorities around the transition to net zero are identified and addressed in these sectors?
If so, then this is your opportunity to feed into the policy making process.
