What We Do Informing Policy Climate Emergency Summits Following the Government's announcement of a climate emergency, we held a solutions-focused climate summit at our offices in August 2019 with representatives from over 30 organisations, including NGOs, businesses, local authorities and Government agencies. Producing literally hundreds of ideas, we published a document detailing some of the key priority areas for action and submitted this to Government. Since then, we have held further summits, and plan to continue these brainstorming meetings in the months ahead, via Zoom. Our summits provide a space for motivated people from across the sectors to come together in a safe and open workshop environment to offer solutions to the climate emergency. These facilitated sessions are designed to use the collective expertise of participants to highlight purposeful actions and good practice examples, and to influence policy making. As of March 2021, we have held nine summits, covering the following issues: Summit I: Shaping the Change: Building the World You Want to See Summit II: Financing the Transition: Tax & Subsidies Summit III: Nature-Based Solutions (with NatureScot) Summit IV: Construction (with Zero Waste Scotland) Summit V: Coronavirus & A Green Recovery (with Zero Waste Scotland) Summit VI: Food (with The Pebble Trust) Summit VII: Procurement (with Zero Waste Scotland) Summit VIII: Land (with NatureScot and The Scottish Land Commission) Summit IX: Transport and mindmap (with Smarter Choices, Smarter Places, and Transform Scotland) We have also held an extra 'focus workshop' on geopolymer cement, which allowed a detailed, specific look at issues surrounding cement, an industry which is responsible for c8% of global carbon emissions.
