Third Sector Net Zero Strategy

The beginning of September saw the formal launch of the Third Sector Net Zero Strategy as part of the CEIS’ SE Policy and Practice Conference. Late last year, SENScot convened a Steering Group that included SCVO, CEIS, SCA, CRNS, Scottish Communities Finance, SES, DTA Scotland and Firstport. The Group consulted with their respective membership to help shape a draft Strategy that sets out 4 key ‘actions’ that would enable social enterprises in Scotland to play a leading role in delivering Scotland’s Net Zero transition by 2045. In shaping the Strategy, it became apparent that there was a lock of baseline data to demonstrate the sector’s existing impact – nor an awareness of the support measures required by the sector to meet the proposed targets. In response, SENScot and SCVO carried out a survey of members – with over 500 organisations participating – and have produced this Report with results and analysis.
