BT Scotland and the Environment
Scotland has some of the toughest environmental targets anywhere in the world – its climate change act sets a target of reducing emissions by 80 per cent by 2050, including emissions from international aviation and shipping. It also sets an interim target for a 42 per cent cut in emissions by 2020. Learn more about BT's commitment to being a responsible and sustainable business by reading our Better Future Report.
BT Scotland is playing its part in helping to meet Scotland’s challenging carbon reduction targets. BT Scotland director Brendan Dick is a member of Scotland’s 2020 Climate Group, a gathering of leaders from Scottish public, business and civic life convened by Ian Marchant, chief executive of Scottish & Southern Energy, to help meet the delivery targets. BT is also a member of the Sustainable Glasgow initiative.
BT Scotland worked with Scottish Business in the Community and the 2020 Climate Group to create the country’s first environmental, online support tool. Launched by Minister for the Environment and Climate Change, Stewart Stevenson, the Envirowheel is designed to help Scottish businesses identify the help they need to save money and become more sustainable.
Each section of the wheel clearly highlights the range of help available in key areas of the Scottish Government’s Climate Change Delivery Plan – energy, transport, waste, water and behaviour change, as well as key areas of business improvement, finance and legislation. Businesses simply click the section that is most relevant to them to find the help they need.
