Infograph on low carbon infrastructure benefits from "Scotland's way ahead"
The ‘Scotland’s Way Ahead’ report is the first step in exploring how Scotland could meet it's climate change targets by increasing both public and private sector investments in low carbon infrastructure.
The report was commissioned by the Low Carbon Infrastructure Task Force - which includes Ramboll Energy and other key figures from engineering, finance, construction, academia, public sector, development and environmental groups.
The report’s findings make clear that public investment into low carbon infrastructure would bring many benefits, including:
“As Scotland prepares to spend billions of pounds over the coming decades to upgrade our ageing infrastructure, it’s essential we invest wisely for the future, building infrastructure that improves our economy, environment and quality of life for the people of Scotland in the 21st Century and beyond.
I’m delighted to be playing a part in this exciting new project which I hope will inspire the next generation of men and women into the profession to build on the legacy of famous engineers of the past including Telford, Watt, Arrol and Stevenson. They have the potential to build a better world by getting involved in 21st Century engineering projects that will stand the test of time, as the Forth Bridge has done.”
