The Scottish Parliament has become the latest organisation to take part in the national Resource Efficiency Pledge scheme.
The Resource Efficiency Pledge is led by Zero Waste Scotland's Business Energy Efficiency Support service, which works with businesses to help them reduce their energy and carbon emissions.
By making the Pledge, businesses can choose a number of actions that will help to reduce their use of energy, water and raw materials, and also provides a way to demonstrate they are environmentally responsible.
The Scottish Parliament will be an official Resource Efficiency Pledge Ambassador.
As an Ambassador, the Scottish Parliament will work with businesses to promote the scheme and support them to make savings. In doing so the Parliament has committed to:
- Embedding resource efficiency in its own operations;
- Actively contributing to achieving a low carbon economy for Scotland.
