Green Recovery Statement for The Historic Environment

This Green Recovery Statement supports the green principles set out by the Scottish Government and highlights seven key areas where the historic environment can help deliver an economic recovery.

It can be used to articulate how the historic environment contributes to the national transition to a low carbon, resource efficient and socially inclusive economy.

The historic environment has a role to play in tackling the climate emergency and realising a just transition to net zero. Find out more about how we contribute to a green recovery with our case studies and how we’re taking climate action now to protect our past for the future.

The statement has been prepared by Historic Environment Scotland, the lead public body charged with ensuring the historic environment is looked after, protected and managed for generations to come.
