Climate Action Plan

Scotland has declared a climate emergency and our historic environment has unique potential to inspire climate action, as set out in this action plan.

Scotland’s historic sites are awe-inspiring, bringing visitors to marvel at our castles, cairns, abbeys and palaces. And much of our daily life takes place in the historic buildings that have become our much-loved homes, workplaces, schools and community spaces.

But our historic environment is on the front line of climate change.

We must harness the power of Scotland’s history to foster positive behaviour change and increase resilience to climate change in communities across the country. We cannot face the climate emergency and its effects on our heritage alone.

Our Climate Action Plan details our climate action ambitions for the historic environment for 2020–2025, which we can realise by working together.
