Sustainability and Natural Capital

Sustainability and Natural Capital

SUSTAINABILITY – Avoidance of the depletion of natural resources in order to maintain an ecological balance.

NATURAL CAPITAL – A term for the habitats and ecosystems that provide social, environmental and economic benefits to humans. Scotland has a wide range of these habitats and ecosystems – each of which makes a unique contribution to the wellbeing of those who live and work in Scotland.

The Scottish government have made the following commitment to sustainability and natural capital:

Protecting and enhancing Scotland’s natural assets.

Key points:

  • Investment in Scotland’s natural assets – air, water, land and nature – will deliver a healthier and more prosperous Scotland.
  • Climate Change Adaptation Programme

High quality natural assets – like our water, air, soils and nature – are the cornerstones of our economy, culture and quality of life.

We will make regional land use plans for maximising the potential of every part of Scotland’s land to contribute to the fight against climate change.

The new, statutory, five‑year Climate Change Adaptation Programme will set out around 170 policies and proposals. It is centred on our communities, climate justice, the economy, infrastructure and supporting systems, our natural, coastal and marine environments and our international partnerships. The programme is designed to address priority risks for Scotland and a number of research projects to help us better understand the action we will need to take.

We at Albamontane are confident that projects we have executed, and are currently engaged in, demonstrate that we have the knowledge, skills and expertise which will be required to enhance and extend any forthcoming initiatives.

Our objectives are to:

  • Support and implement recycling activities. This to include both the use of recycled materials where possible and the recycling of any waste materials.
  • To minimise our energy consumption in all areas, both office and on site. Key consideration is given to the fuel consumption of vehicles and plant.
  • Fully train and inform staff of their environmental obligations as part of this business.
  • Ensure use of substances that are hazardous to the environment are kept to a minimum and where possible use alternatives.
  • Plan and implement procedures that in case of emergency, minimal environmental impacts occur.
