The Scottish Parliament's Environment, Climate Change and Land Reform Committee's launched a call for views on green recovery. This focused on identifying the principles, opportunities, key actions for change, immediate priorities, leadership and governance needed to underpin an effective green recovery, as well as the potential barriers to implementation.

The Committee asked for views on the following questions: 

  • Do the principles of sustainable development, and those for a resilient recovery, as proposed by the UK Committee on Climate Change, provide a comprehensive framework for guiding an effective green recovery in Scotland?
  • What are the key barriers to delivering a green recovery?
  • What key policies, actions and immediate priorities are needed to deliver a green recovery?
  • How should the 2021/22 Budget support a green and sustainable recovery and avoid locking in carbon; and what funding is needed in the Committee's portfolio to deliver a green and sustainable recovery?
