Chapter 11: Environment, Climate Change and Land Reform

Portfolio Responsibilities

The Environment, Climate Change and Land Reform portfolio works across government to support and facilitate the pivot towards a net-zero trajectory which requires all portfolios to respond to the global climate emergency. The portfolio is also charged with protecting and enhancing our natural environment and resources. While there are significant challenges in this space there are also exciting opportunities to diversify our economy and to lead the world in transitioning to net-zero.

The overarching aim is to protect and promote Scotland's environment and to build a strong and sustainable net-zero economy through:

  • tackling climate change;
  • protecting our iconic species and landscapes;
  • investing in biodiversity and natural capital;
  • improving the quality of our air, land, seas and fresh water;
  • developing a circular economy;
  • empowering communities and improving the way land is owned, used and managed; and
  • investing in the research base.

Portfolio responsibilities include sponsorship of Crown Estate Scotland (Interim Management), a public corporation established by Scottish Ministers to manage the Scottish Crown Estate assets from the point of devolution on 1 April 2017. Crown Estate Scotland (Interim Management)'s operating costs are funded from the gross revenue of the assets (and are classified as such as non-Vote expenditure) and the net revenue is paid into the Scottish Consolidated Fund.

Portfolio Priorities

Our priority for the year ahead is to respond to the global climate emergency and biodiversity loss. This will require a cross-government effort, with all portfolios tackling these twin challenges and to capturing the opportunities of transitioning our economy and protecting and enhancing our natural capital. We will ensure that our high quality natural assets - like our water, air, soils and nature - are the cornerstones of our economy, culture and quality of life and we will continue to ensure these precious assets are protected and enhanced.

The transition to a net-zero society is an essential investment for the future welfare of the people of Scotland, our economy, our environment and for those generations yet to be born. We lead by example with our ambitious statutory targets, strong progress to date and commitment to increasing our ambition in response to the Paris Agreement and our approach to a just transition where everyone benefits from the opportunities and no community is left behind. We will design policy to carefully consider where the costs and opportunities of the net-zero transition fall and consider innovative approaches to finance the transition.

Action across the portfolio contributes to the National Outcome on valuing, enjoying, protecting and enhancing our environment and supports a wide range of other National Outcomes. The transition to a net-zero economy is at the heart of our economic strategy. Ensuring this is a just transition will help support thriving and innovative businesses with quality jobs and provide fair work for all. It will tackle poverty by sharing opportunities more equally. The steps we are taking to build a circular economy and maintain strong environmental regulation ensures we have a globally competitive, entrepreneurial, inclusive and sustainable economy. Scotland's natural environment is a valuable health-promoting asset, with investment in our green and blue infrastructure encouraging a healthier and more active Scotland.

Taking advantage of the benefits of the circular economy, we are designing a deposit return scheme for drinks containers and are committed to introducing a Circular Economy Bill during this parliamentary session. This will support our world-leading action on climate change.

The portfolio is heavily impacted by EU exit, with essential funding, labour, scientific expertise and around 80 per cent of our environmental legislation coming from the EU. In line with our commitment to maintain environmental standards after EU exit, putting in place new arrangements for environmental law and policy will continue to be priorities for this portfolio.

Contributions to National Outcomes

ECCLR

This table summarises the portfolio's contributions to the Outcomes of the National Performance Framework.

Table 11.08: National Outcomes

Climate Change and Land Managers Renewables Fund

Primary National Outcome: Environment

Secondary National Outcomes: Economy, Health, Communities, International

By reducing greenhouse gas emissions, we are increasing the likelihood of average global temperature rises staying below 1.5 degrees Celsius, avoiding the more catastrophic effects of global warming on biodiversity, human populations and the economy worldwide, including in Scotland. By taking a strategic approach to the transition to net-zero (a Green New Deal), we can position Scotland's economy to grow sustainably and ensure the transition is fair and no community is left behind. By being at the vanguard of a global move to low carbon economies, Scotland will be well placed to innovate and export low carbon technologies, solutions and business practices. By reducing the use of fossil fuels in the transport system, we will improve the quality of air that people breathe. And by involving everyone in the transition to climate-neutrality, we will ensure that both the benefits and the costs are shared fairly across all communities.

By engaging with international partners and through our Climate Justice Fund we meet our obligations internationally, promote our place in the world and deepen our relationships with others.

We will play a leading role to raise global ambition, including by delivering meaningful roles for Ministers and Scottish society at the UN Climate Summit - COP 26 - in Glasgow and making a positive contribution to the International Outcome. We will enhance our international reputation, create economic opportunities and build our international network.

The Green New Deal will take a strategic approach to grow our inclusive economy and support collective wellbeing by capturing the opportunities of the transition to net-zero. We will continue to support the Just Transition Commission in its role to advise Ministers on a fair transition to a climate-neutral Scotland.

We will work to protect and enhance our world-class natural environment, to support inclusive and sustainable economic growth, and to promote the enjoyment of Scotland's environment and unique natural heritage.

Environmental Services

Primary National Outcome: Environment

Secondary National Outcomes: Economy, Communities, Health

Delivery of River Basin Management Plans, with the support of the Water Environment Fund, will continue to make a positive contribution to easing the pressures on wild fish (e.g. Atlantic Salmon), preparing for climate change, and protecting and improving our rivers, lochs, wetlands and coastal waters for the enjoyment of all.

Our action to improve air quality contribute to improvements in both human and environmental health. We will consult on a draft new air quality strategy taking into account the conclusions and recommendations of the independent review of the current Cleaner Air for Scotland strategy, followed by publication of the new strategy, to deliver further improvements in air quality.

We will continue the transition to a circular economy, cutting waste and carbon emissions and opening up new economic opportunities which will support the Economy National Outcome.

Land Reform

Primary National Outcome: Environment

Secondary National Outcomes: Economy, Communities, Human Rights

Land has a major role to play in tackling climate change, particularly through how land is used. Regional land use plans will enable strategic consideration of how land can best be used to tackle climate change. Tackling long-term land problems like concentrated ownership and vacant and derelict land will support inclusive growth by helping to make more land available for a wider range of uses, and encouraging land to be used productively.

We will continue to support community land ownership and greater community engagement in decisions about how land is used and managed. Increasingly, we are viewing land through a rights-based approach, both as a right in itself and in delivering other rights.

Research, Analysis and Other

Primary National Outcome: Environment

Secondary National Outcomes: Economy, International, Communities

The Research, Analysis and Other budget funds a portfolio of strategic research, knowledge exchange and expert advice in support of Scottish Government policies on a wide range of rural and agricultural topics, including the natural environment, crop and livestock sciences, animal welfare, and the rural economy.

This research also provides critical insights into complex global challenges such as food security and climate change that helps inform policy development. Funding from this budget helps maintain science innovation and excellence and also supports critical infrastructure and research assets, including collections of national and international importance.

The Environment Strategy will help to guide our approach to protecting and restoring Scotland's environment and delivering our international responsibilities, including our contribution to tackling the global climate emergency, while also seizing opportunities to improve economic success and the wellbeing of our communities. The strategy will form part of our overall strategic approach on environmental policy, alongside future arrangements for environmental principles and governance.

Environmental governance will promote effective implementation of high environmental standards, which support our economy, and enhance the welfare of our communities.

Marine

Primary National Outcome: Environment

Secondary National Outcomes: Economy, Fair Work and Business, International, Health

Scotland's marine environment already provides a huge resource for improving wellbeing by offering attractive recreation and tourism opportunities. The 2015 Scottish Marine Recreation and Tourism Survey estimates that £3.7 billion is spent in Scotland on recreation and tourism activities across our seas and coastal communities. Our roll-out of marine protected areas (MPAs) and conservation measures have already started to show signs of adding to the wellbeing from our marine environment.

In 2020-21 we will continue to safeguard and monitor marine and fisheries activity in Scotland's seas, coasts, rivers and ports to ensure that national and international regulations are enforced to protect the health and sustainability of fish and shellfish stocks and the marine and freshwater environment in collaboration with the fishing industry and other key stakeholders.

Examples of past and future activities that contribute to the Environment National Outcome include:

  • Completed the annual programme of fisheries data collection, ensuring international obligations are met under the Data Collection Framework and providing the data required to generate advice on catch limits to ensure sustainable fisheries.
  • Use of ScotMER evidence maps to deliver research priorities to address knowledge gaps that are constraints to sustainable delivery of marine renewables. Development of dolphin and porpoise, and seabird Conservation Strategies. Monitoring underwater noise to assess status of marine environment via ECOMMAS and three EU funded projects.
  • Conducted ICES assessments for 12 key stocks in European waters, and provided germane, relevant and timely advice for Scottish government ministers and stakeholders to facilitate profitable, responsible and sustainable fisheries.
  • Co-ordinated annual stock monitoring of salmon and sea trout, applying Salmon Conservation Regulations to control mortality due to salmon angling.
  • Co-ordinated a network of river temperature monitors and produced a mapping tool to identify priority locations for planting trees to shade rivers and protect young salmon and trout from high temperatures associated with climate change.
  • Implemented the comprehensive annual marine environmental monitoring and assessment programme; work towards the update of Scotland's Marine Atlas.
  • In supporting large-scale offshore wind developments we will encourage sustainable and inclusive growth whilst positively promoting a low carbon approach to generating electricity.
  • New programmes of seabird tracking and surveys will inform the future conservation strategy for Scotland's unique seabird populations.
  • Protection of Scotland's rich and diverse dolphin and whale populations in offshore waters west of Scotland will be strengthened using an array of deep-water passive acoustic monitoring devices.
  • We will develop analytical models to understand the distribution of priority marine habitats and species on Scotland's seabed to enhance our management of protected nature sites.

Our approach to marine planning is seeking to maximise opportunities for improving health and wellbeing associated with Scotland's natural and historic environment. We are investing to tackle marine litter not only to protect our ecosystems, but to address the public health risks associated with plastic entering the marine food chain and to preserve our pristine marine environment for enjoyment by all.

Scottish Water

Primary National Outcome: Environment

Economy, Health, Communities

Scottish Water have developed a long-term industry vision to support its efforts to achieve net-zero emissions by 2040. This vision clearly identifies how it will transform the way it delivers vital services and improves technical standards. The vision highlights ambition for excellent water quality and enhancing the environment whilst remaining affordable to customers. It highlights the critical role the sector has in supporting the economy and creating a flourishing Scotland.

Scottish Water invests around £600 million each year allowing Scotland to enjoy extremely high standards of Drinking Water quality which ensures the essential health and hydration of the population.

Our Scotland the Hydro Nation programme includes the 'Your Water, Your Life' campaign which is proving to be a great success with top-up taps being rolled out across Scotland to allow people to hydrate using re-usable bottles.
