In the face of the Climate Emergency, Scotland's rural economy is thriving and at the forefront of climate change objectives.
With 20% of the population living in rural areas, and more impressively making up 27% of Scotland’s economy, it is good to know that land managers are sustaining excellent levels of carbon capture by their current practices.
Scotland currently stores four times the global average of soil carbon per square metre than the rest of the world, a fact acknowledged in the latest report by the Rural Commission of the SCDI and backed up by the Hutton Institute.
