NOW LIVE! The Sustainable Dundee Map
A whole new way to explore local sustainable initiatives
Sustainable Dundee have developed an interactive map of all the Dundee initiatives that link directly with each of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG's). The UN SDG's are an urgent call to action to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure that by 2030 all people enjoy peace and prosperity. The 17 Goals are connected, which means that action in on area will affect outcomes in others.
Dundee's Emissions Dashboard
Dundee is the first local authority in Scotland to use the ClimateOS Platform, digitising its climate data in a bid to speed up climate action and reach its goal of net-zero emissions by 2045.
Cities around the world are facing increasing pressure to develop strategies that reduce their emissions. Whether it’s a 2030, 2040 or 2050 net zero target – doing nothing is simply no longer an option. When looking where to start, the choices can be daunting, but as the climate crisis intensifies, long-term planning must not obscure the need for urgent action.Explore the Emission Dashboard
