Set climate and nature commitments in the Good Food Nation Plan
Develop clear targets on reducing the Scottish diet’s climate and environmental footprint, through the Good Food Nation Plan process.
The Scottish Government is currently developing its Good Food Nation Plan. This will be a blueprint for future local and business Good Food Plans.
The Scottish Government must develop clear targets and indicators on reducing the Scottish diet’s climate and environmental footprint (currently the highest among UK nations, according to an upcoming WWF UK report), if the food systems’ green transition is to be at the forefront of the upcoming plans.
