This document sets out Friends of the Earth Scotland’s response to the questions posed by the Scottish Government’s Advisory Group on Economic Recovery.

The Advisory Group launched a consultation asking for suggestions on how Scotland’s economy could recover from the impacts of COVID-19. Our response sets out some of the measures that the Scottish Government should prioritise in its economic recovery plans to deliver a Just and Green Recovery.

Amongst other things, we call for a Publicly Owned Energy Company with power to generate its own power, improvements to sustainable transport to support mobility, and a move away from using GDP as the sole measure of economic success.
