Cusack M (2020) The Stirling Protocol: Environment at the heart of inclusive growth. Scotland's Centre for Regional Inclusive Growth blog [Blog post] 24.08.2020.
First paragraph: The Scottish Government is committed to addressing climate change and achieving Net Zero by 2045. Many organisations and individuals are keen to do the right thing to address climate change but are often unsure about the correct steps to take. Part of the problem is that traditional thinking tends to consider the environment and the economy to be opposing forces that we must choose between. In direct contrast to this view, The Stirling Protocol puts the environment at the heart of a strong economy. The Stirling Protocol serves as a ready reckoner where decision-makers MUST address the three pillars: environment, economy and inclusion in any decisions be they large or small.
