Just transition discussion paper for the built environment and construction

July 13, 2023

The Net Zero Working Group of the Transformation Board is calling on those working in the built environment and construction sector in Scotland to support a wide programme of stakeholder engagement on the recently published Just Transition Discussion Paper for the Built Environment and Construction. The paper outlines Scottish Government’s initial consideration of the key challenges and opportunities that the transition to net zero will bring.

Over the next few weeks, a programme of engagement is being undertaken to gather feedback and a range of insights. These will be used to inform the draft plans that are due to be published at the end of 2023/early 2024.

This is a key opportunity for you to have your voice heard to ensure a just transition to net zero in the built environment.

There are several opportunities to participate:

1.   Sign up for one of these workshops:

◾ Central Scotland: BE-ST, Hamilton, 26July  

◾ South of Scotland: Dumfries & Galloway College, Dumfries, 31 July  

◾ North of Scotland: Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen, 3 August

2.   Take part in an online interview – sign up here

3.   Complete the survey

Your input is important and we encourage you to participate in as many ways as you can.  Please share these opportunities with your networks.

This programme is being carried out on behalf of Scottish Government by the Construction Leadership Forum’s net zero working group, with additional support from the CLF’s data and communications working groups and the wider Forum. It supports the Construction Accord’s outcome of driving a just transition to being net zero in embodied carbon, industry operations and over the asset lifecycles.
