Alloa’s new environmental centre to fight climate change

Skip Hire Alloa Logo

With all eyes on Glasgow and the COP26 conference recently, Alloa is gearing up to play its part in the drive towards net zero and the switch to a decarbonised, green economy thanks to the launch of the Alloa-based Scottish International Environment Centre, which is a joint venture between Forth Valley College, Stirlingshire and Clackmannanshire local authorities, and the University of Stirling.
It aims to bring about transformative change in green business practises through innovation and collaboration, framing the conservation and improvement of our natural resources as a driver of economic growth, well-being, and a fair transition to a net-zero future.
SIEC will foster an innovation community in the region while also bringing about revolutionary change in sustainable business practises covering green investment, social impact, and growth in green technologies, as well as creating green new jobs in order to boost both economic growth and provide long-term future career prospects for local youngsters. Engaging young people is a crucial part of the new centre with several local secondary schools closely involved in the project.
Its first major project, however, is the Forth Environmental Resilience Array project, which aims to combine and analyse data sources in order to provide information to all parties in order to enable better analysis of the changes caused by and inform policies and plans to deal with the effects of climate change in the most effective way possible.
It is hoped the pioneering project, which was introduced in front of an international audience at COP26, will serve as an international model of good practise and place Stirling and Clackmannanshire at the forefront of the response to the climate emergency and achieving the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. Not only that, it will help to guide the local economy of Clackmannanshire in the deployment of best environmental practise towards achieving a net zero regional economy that minimises emissions whilst providing opportunities for all members of our communities and businesses in the likes of Alva, Tullibody, Tillicoultry and Dollar to reduce their carbon footprint and share in the social, economic and environmental benefits of a low carbon future.
