“Scotland’s universities and colleges are making a valuable contribution to tackling climate change. Building on these achievements will be key in helping Scotland meet its climate change targets and in creating a more resilient, low-carbon society. The choices we make in the places we live, work and learn have an impact on climate change both now and in the future and it is important that we all make a positive contribution”. Michael Russell, former Cabinet Secretary for Education and Lifelong Learning (2014).

On 1 November 2011, 100% Scotland’s universities and colleges publicly declared their intention to address the challenges of climate change and reduce their carbon footprints by signing the Universities and Colleges Climate Commitment for Scotland (UCCCfS) - this programme is delivered by the EAUC and funded by the Scottish Funding Council. Signatories produce and publish a 5-year Climate Change Action Plan (CCAP) which will be incorporated into established improvement processes, with the aim to achieve a significant reduction in emissions.

Primarily funded through the Scottish Funding Council, the core work of the Scotland team centres around our current 3 year Programme running from April 2017 to March 2020, Catalysing Transformative Leadership for Sustainability.
