For the past two years ClimateXChange has carried out  a survey on behalf of Scottish Government to explore equality issues within the Scottish renewables industry.

It is now carrying out the new survey for 2015. This is now live and runs online until the end of next month.

Sarah Govan, ClimateXChange Knowledge Manager, said: “The organisers are keen to hear from all of the different types and sizes of organisation that are involved in the renewables industry in Scotland, from PR to Manufacturing, NGOs to Developers, and micro businesses to large corporations.”

Each year, the Scottish Government reports on the progress made towards achieving its renewable energy targets through the 2020 Renewable Routemap for Scotland Update.

ClimateXChange has developed the equalities monitoring programme that informs the reporting, and further information can be found here:

The survey for the 2015 report is now online at:  https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/RRM_Voluntary_Disclosure_2015

It will remain open until close of business on 30 October 2015.
