Impact reports

Learn about our impact reports.

Our planet is our single most valuable resource. That's why we're committed to playing our part in Scotland's journey to a low carbon economy. Every three years we publish a report to share the range of actions we've taken to further the conservation of biodiversity.

We're committed to equal opportunities as an employer and in the services we provide. Every two years we publish a report that sets out our commitment to equal opportunities and charts the progress and steps we're taking to address the needs of under-represented groups.
