Edinburgh has an ambitious target to become a net zero city by 2030. This means that by 2030, we want to remove the same amount of greenhouse gases that we, as a city, put into the air.
Our 2030 target recognises the need for Edinburgh to play its part in helping to deliver on national goals to reduce emissions. And that cities will need to make faster progress on reducing greenhouse gas emissions if Scotland is to meet its national 2045 net zero target.
Our longer-term vision for a greener, cleaner, fairer Edinburgh will only be possible through working with others. Citizens across the city, businesses and organisations in Edinburgh and the Council must work together to achieve this goal.
We are managing a pioneering project to help Edinburgh’s SMEs participate in the just transition to a net zero carbon economy and support innovative de-carbonisation projects in the City. Supported by the City of Edinburgh Council through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund, the Net Zero Edinburgh project will run over three years until the end of March 2025.
SME’s taking part in the project will enjoy a range of free support including informative events, workshops, 1-2-1 and group mentoring, and access to toolkits and resources. There will some spaces available for a cohort of companies who will receive tailored support to plan, write and deliver their own net zero plan.
If you would like to find out what support is available please get in touch with the team on 0131 221 2999 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
This project is funded by the UK Government through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund.
