|1 year (FY 2024/25)
Supporting our policy and public affairs work in Scotland is an opportunity to help shape our priorities, develop our policy positions, and have a front-row seat in our engagement with government, officials, and the opposition, as we ensure that the voice of our sustainable built environment is heard in this election year.
Together, we will engage across a range of policy areas, including in key moments like the Heat in Buildings Bill’s passage through parliament, the formulation of Scotland’s next climate change adaptation programme, the Just Transition plan for the built environment and construction, and with our political parties as they develop their manifestoes ahead of 2024’s UK general election. Your involvement will give you a key position in shaping this engagement and the impact we’ll have this year.
Through our policy work in Scotland we aim to realise the potential of this pivotal year by:
- Co-developing strong policy positions that are then reflected in party manifestos and in legislation and regulation, on;
- Commercial and domestic retrofit
- Ambitious new-build standards for resilient and net-zero development
- Embodied carbon
- Climate adaptation
- Building on strong relationships with key decision makers and influencers across the political spectrum, to enable members to actively engage in policy advocacy and the policymaking process.
