SSN's Priority Themes
While SSN is, at heart, a network within which local authority officers can share knowledge and experience, we have four national programme priorities:
Supporting local authorities to deliver the Duty of Sustainable Development within the Best Value regime.
Supporting local authorities to deliver on the commitments made through Scotland's Climate Change Declaration and informing implementation of the Climate Change (Scotland) Act and related national policies.
Providing a support programme for local authorities on ecological and carbon footprinting.
|Procurement for Sustainability|
Supporting local authorities to procure responsibly and in a way that delivers community well being, minimises resource use and prevents environmental degradation.
All four programme priorities are developing with an emphasis on their interrelationships, securing multiplier effects and mutual reinforcement.
