Scottish Parliament becomes Resource Efficiency Pledge Ambassador


Zero Waste Scotland’s Resource Efficiency Pledge scheme has signed up the Scottish Parliament as its latest member.

The Scottish Parliament will also become an ambassador for the scheme that encourages businesses and organisations to reduce their use of energy, water and raw materials.

Scottish Parliament assistant chief executive David McGill (pictured left) said: “The Resource Efficiency Pledge is a chance for the Scottish Parliamentary Corporate Body to build on its already ambitious environmental targets. Our plan to reduce our carbon footprint by 42% by 2020 from the baseline year of 2006 is on course to be achieved and the carbon management plan continues to deliver reductions in our carbon emissions.”

Resource Efficient Scotland head Marissa Lippiatt (pictured right) said: “I’m delighted that the Scottish Parliament are becoming ambassadors for the Resource Efficiency Pledge and supporting us to reach businesses across the company. The pledge helps businesses to save significant sums of money on their running costs, cut their carbon footprint and show off their green credentials all in one easy step.”
