Reducing carbon emissions to meet net zero holds challenges and opportunities for Scotland’s food and drink industry. Our manufacturers and producers have made great progress - but we need to do more, faster. 

Our Net Zero Commitment Programme is here to ensure that everyone in Scotland’s food and drink industry understand net zero, knows where we’re going and knows how to get there. 

We are hosting this programme on behalf of the Scotland Food & Drink Partnership. This is part of partnership's Net Zero Commitment to ensure we can deliver net zero food and drink products on our supermarket shelves by 2045.

Scotland has great potential to be a world leader in more sustainable food and drink production. For more information on where to begin, visit Scotland Food & Drink’s net zero page.
