Climate Change

Climate change remains a critically important issue for Scottish farming.  

NFU Scotland recognise the climate emergency. As a major land use in Scotland, it is critical that agriculture plays a key role in meeting ambitious climate change targets. Scottish farmers and crofters will be part of the solution to climate change.
