Farming for the future

Scottish farmers, crofters, and growers have a key role to play in further reducing emissions to meet climate change goals.

NFU Scotland recognises that Scottish agriculture must take significant steps if the sector is to achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2045 - the target set by the Climate Change (Emissions Reduction Targets) (Scotland) Act 2019. This is alongside working to increase biodiversity in the farmed landscape.

With the creation of Scottish Government's Farmer Led Climate Change Groups (FLG’s) and the recent publication of the Farming for 1.5°C report and the Union’s own ‘Steps to Change’ document, we are seeing a consensus in the direction of travel for a just transition that allows for Scottish agricultural businesses to remain productive and profitable, led by and for Scottish farmers and crofters.

While there is a lot more work to do, Scottish agriculture is making positive strides towards meeting its targets. In the that year COP comes to Scotland, this campaign aims to highlight what our industry is already doing and that we are ready to face the challenges ahead.
