Climate Change

NFU Scotland recognises the climate emergency and is committed to being an industry leader on climate change. As a major land use in Scotland, it is critical that agriculture has a key role to play in reducing emissions and meeting ambitious climate change targets. Scottish farmers, crofters, and growers will be part of the solution to climate change.
