Environmental sustainability guidance


Scottish Government Reporting Guidance

Mandatory reporting for public bodies was announced by the Scottish Government at the Sustainable Scotland Network (SSN) Conference on 25th November 2014. Nearly 150 public bodies in Scotland are required to report, including universities and colleges.

The reporting template was developed by the Climate Leaders’ Officer Group (CLOG) which consists of representatives from all areas of the public sector; local authorities, education, the NHS and other Non-departmental Public Bodies and SEPA. EAUC-Scotland provided input and guidance on behalf of the further and higher education sector through this group.
