We collaborate with government, enterprise and academics to help craft smart climate and energy policy.

ECCI is also the base for ClimateXChange – Scotland’s Centre of Expertise on Climate Change, which provides independent, authoritative advice to Government policy teams and public agencies to support low carbon & climate policy.


ClimateXChange is Scotland's centre of expertise on climate change. We provide a research, advice and analysis service to Scottish Government policy teams and associated public agencies on the transition to a low carbon economy and adapting to a changing climate.

Researchers from 15 of Scotland's leading research and higher education institutions are members of ClimateXChange but the Centre also commissions research from outwith this network.

The Centre is run by directors and a secretariat based at James Hutton Institute, Aberdeen University, Edinburgh Centre for Carbon Innovation and Sniffer, a charity working on environmental change and climate resilience.

Edinburgh Centre for Carbon Innovation works closely with CXC to engage with the Scottish Government on developing low carbon policy.
