Scottish Net Zero Roadmap: Emerging Societal, Economic and Policy Opportunities and Challenges

Research output: Book/ReportOther report


In this briefing we explore the key and emerging societal, economic and policy opportunities and challenges of key elements emerging across all of the scenarios the SNZR project is currently considering. In doing so, we draw on CEP’s policy expertise and foundation of public policy-facing economic research alongside the early outputs emerging from the SNZR roadmap. A key takeaway message emerges around the need to consider how activities set out in the roadmap deliver against a range of societal outcomes, if the route to industrial transition is to be socially and politically, as well as technically feasible. Here, the roadmap can act as a key tool and catalyst to enable discussions around the most sustainable and equitable pathway for the industrial sector and broader societal transition to net zero emissions.
