Welcome to Environmental Protection Scotland’s website. Here you will find impartial environmental advice and policy updates based on sound science and research.
Environmental Protection Scotland (EPS) has roots stretching back to the 19th Century. We bring together individuals and organisations across the public, private and voluntary sectors to discuss and promote ideas, knowledge and solutions to achieve our aim of a cleaner, quieter, healthier and sustainable Scotland.
EPS is active and influential in the fields of air quality, land quality, noise and are at the fore of emerging environmental issues, including working towards sustainable development for a resilient Scotland. We will work to deliver those topics as a means to protect and improve public health, tackle climate change and address sustainable development.
We have also recently launched Breathe Scotland – the cleaner air initiative for Scotland. This aims to raise awareness of air pollution and its impacts on public health in a balanced and factual manner. This initiative will bring together a growing number of key stakeholders to encourage behaviour that helps cut air pollution and our exposure to it.
Highly respected within the environmental sector, we work towards innovative solutions to environmental problems. We depend upon the support of our members so that we continue to promote our understanding of environmental issues. Please see our Join Us page for further information.
Our expert led training events and workshops come with continual professional development points which help environmental practitioners learn and share best practice. Members can take advantage of discounts and attendance at Members Only Networking Seminars.
We continue to work together with our colleagues throughout the United Kingdom working in partnership with EPUK.
