Our Net Zero Skills Support programme has been modelled on Skills Development Scotland’s Climate Emergency Skills Action Plan. With a global focus on decarbonisation a key part of COVID economic recovery, this initiative will help ensure that SMEs are ready to play a role in Scotland’s green recovery, and can take full advantage of opportunities for diversification, strengthening sustainability and planning their own net-zero route map.

The programme is a result of discussions with member companies following their feedback early in 2020 where a strong majority of respondents (92%) reported that their organisations recognise that the declared climate emergency is real and requires an urgent response. When asked to describe the organisation’s view of the threat or opportunity that the business faces from this, 46% stated they were concerned, while only 18% saw opportunity, giving this initiative a clear target to improve that balance. This is a twelve-month programme funded by Skills Development Scotland, with support open to all Scottish engineering and manufacturing sector SMEs, and will be delivered through a series of online workshops and one-to-one sessions, with supporting materials developed and made available digitally.
