Project Background:

Part 4 of the Climate Change (Scotland) Act 2009 placed duties on public bodies to comply with carbon emission reduction. In order to assist with complying with these duties, the Scottish Government produced guidance entitled “Public bodies climate change duties: Putting them into practice”.

Project objectives

Resource Efficient Solutions were asked to identify if the target audience found the document fit for purpose.

Our role

Initially Resource Efficient Solutions met with Sustainable Scotland Network to outline the scope of the work and develop research methodologies and questions. We then:

Undertook telephone interviews of staff in local authorities charged with delivering sustainable development.
Analysed telephone responses as well as results from internet survey.
Produced comprehensive report of findings and provided recommendations.
Reported findings via closure meeting with SSN & Scottish Government.
