Climate Action Summit 2024


Holyrood Events, SSN and ECCI

As world leaders prepare to gather for COP29, the Holyrood Climate Action summit and Climate Action Awards will return to Edinburgh in October 2024 in a decisive year for the future of Scotland’s climate targets. In light of the Scottish Government’s legislative changes, the summit will ask what steps can be taken to urgently cut emissions in key polluters such as agriculture, the built environment, energy, and transport.

In response to a progress report submitted by the Climate Change Committee, the Scottish Government formally declared its 2030 targets unachievable in April 2024. An expedited policy package was subsequently announced to help Scotland achieve its 2045 Net Zero goals.

Holyrood’s Climate Action Summit will once again partner with the Sustainable Scotland Network (SSN), and Edinburgh Climate Change Institute (ECCI) to explore on–the–ground solutions and innovations for how Scotland’s public sector can decarbonise. Across two days, the themes of leadership for success and funding decarbonisation will be showcased through local and international case studies.

Delegates from the public sector will be joined by the private and third sectors will hear from leading voices from across the Scottish and global climate action space to exchange best practice and practical insights on how Scotland’s public sector can reach its decarbonisation targets.
