UNISON members…

  • Help protect our rivers, land and the air we breathe
  •  Provide clean, safe water for home, work and industry
  •  Keep our towns, cities and countryside clean and tackle noise pollution
  •  Raise awareness of global warming and other environmental issues
  •  Support the three Rs – reduce, reuse, recycle
  •  Promote sustainable ways of living and working

Our members’ ordinary every day jobs directly impact on the quality of life and health of Scotland’s citizens. They are keeping our communities free of litter, collecting household and business waste, providing healthy food to school children, ensuring new buildings meet stricter environmental and energy efficiency targets and working in countless other ways to make sure we can all enjoy the benefits of modern living in a sustainable way.

Sustainable development meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. It is a key principle in tackling climate change.
