Supporting Scotland's Third Sector towards net zero

Welcome to Growing Climate Confidence, where third sector organisations in Scotland can find help to reduce emissions and engage their community. You can learn about the climate crisis, share your experiences with others in the sector, and discover actions and funding you can take to address it. Our Scorecard will assist you in assessing your progress on the journey to net zero.
