Building a sustainable, low-carbon Scotland

There are three Strategic Interventions (SIs) intended to reduce the environmental impact of Scotland's consumption and production:

  • Low Carbon Infrastructure Transition Programme
  • Low Carbon Travel and Transport Programme
  • Resource Efficient Circular Economy

Low Carbon Infrastructure Transition Programme

The Low Carbon Infrastructure Transition Programme (LCITP) SI aims to:

  • support the shift towards a low-carbon economy
  • promote research and innovation in, and the adoption of, low-carbon technology
  • encourage investment in low-carbon technology and development to exploit Scotland's low-carbon potential

The overall lead partner for this SI is our Energy Deployment Division. More information is available on the LCITP page

Low Carbon Travel and Transport Programme

The Low Carbon Travel and Transport Programme SI aims to:

  • increase the number of journeys made by public transport, low-energy vehicles, on foot and by bike
  • build Active Travel Hubs providing focal points for cycling and walking routes
  • provide low-carbon transport hubs with refuelling services for a range of alternative fuels and transport modes at strategic sites
  • develop a national digital ticketing scheme

The lead partners for this SI are:

Resource Efficient Circular Economy

The Resource Efficient Circular Economy SI aims to:

  • protect the environment and promote resource efficiency
  • promote environmental innovation and performance management in the public and private sectors
  • increase business competitiveness by increasing resource efficiency

The lead partner for this SI is:
