Net Zero by SCAPE

Low carbon places strategy

Driving economic stability and inward investment by using decarbonisation as a route to creating better connected and resilient communities.

Place strategy encompasses cutting carbon from heat and buildings, transport and mitigating the impact of climate change.

Place | defined and decarbonised

Place includes infrastructure, housing, connectivity, security, healthcare, public services, community needs and aspirations.

Decarbonisation is vital to directly addressing the Climate Emergency, meeting your net zero targets and creating greener communities, with both urban and rural communities playing an important role in driving new initiatives and investment.

The role of behaviour in shifting demographics and lifestyles cannot be understated, and your Place strategy will need to be supported by ongoing community consultation, engagement and transition support.

The key themes that make up your strategy for place are described below and throughout this navigator. Through the SCAPE Scotland Place Shaping framework we can support your response to the Climate Emergency - identifying where you are now, where you want to be and how you will get there.
