NatureScot, Scotland’s Nature Agency, has joined decisiongradeiot.
NatureScot is Scotland’s nature agency. They work to improve the natural environment in Scotland and inspire everyone to care more about it. NatureScot is the lead public body responsible for advising Scottish Ministers on all matters relating to the natural heritage. Their purpose is to:
- promote, care for and improve our natural heritage
- help people to enjoy nature responsibly
- enable greater understanding and awareness of nature
- promote the sustainable use of Scotland’s natural heritage
They also advise local authorities and work with the Scottish Parliament and public, private and voluntary organisations towards shared aims. John Uttley, Outcome Manager for Sustainable Growth, said:
“Our work contributes to the Scottish Government’s purpose of creating a more successful country, with opportunities for all of Scotland to flourish, through increasing sustainable economic growth. Scotland’s natural capital plays an important role in that, and how the natural economy sector transitions to make the most of the financial, social, cultural and environmental opportunities is our focus. Open standardised processes for digital devices and the data that they collect about carbon/biodiversity and nature improvement will help to build the trustability in the new market of credits that natural capital could create”.
