Environment and Sustainability

The Parliament’s pages on sustainability and environmental management provide information on what we are doing about this important issue.


Enric Miralles' plans for the Scottish Parliament made sustainability a central element of the design across the site.

Through careful design, selection of materials and operation, the environmental impact of the Parliament building is reduced.
