ECCI works with a broad range of organisations who share our commitment to climate action.

Our teams help build and support partnerships between organisations who can deliver real change.

Tackling climate change presents systemic challenges which demand that organisations find new and innovative ways of working together.

Whether it’s reimagining and redesigning places, influencing and changing behaviours, embedding a circular economy or making shared climate commitments - everything we need to do to address climate change, and meet our national and international targets, requires us to work collectively towards a shared ambition and build strong partnerships.

That’s why so much of ECCI's work is focused on building partnerships between organisations who can deliver real change - across sectors, industries and borders.

We do this by creating and managing partnership networks and working with key partners on specific projects and programmes. Take a look at some examples of our partnership work below.

Sustainable Scotland Network (SSN)

With a secretariat based at ECCI, the SSN network spans all of Scotland’s 150+ public sector bodies, facilitating knowledge and resource sharing, and embedding best practice around measuring and driving down climate impact. Read more.
