We are delivering and managing net zero infrastructure and finance programmes that support Scottish Government’s National Infrastructure Mission to drive inclusive economic growth and build resilient places.
The new voluntary Standard supports public bodies meet their net zero commitments for their new build and major refurbished infrastructure projects.
It has been developed by our Net Zero team in collaboration with Scottish Government, Zero Waste Scotland and Health Facilities Scotland with input from across the construction and public sectors in Scotland.
The Standard is designed to support public bodies design excellent new and refurbished buildings collaboratively; to deliver joined-up services in well-designed spaces that prioritise wellbeing, comfort and inclusivity, whilst achieving exemplar practice in their energy, carbon and wider environmental performance – tested in use. The detailed documentation for the Standard is being published in November 2021.
