Who We Are

Scottish Environment LINK is the forum for Scotland’s voluntary environment community, with 40 member bodies representing a broad spectrum of environmental interests with the common goal of contributing to a more environmentally sustainable society.  We are a Scottish Charity (SC000296) and a Scottish Company Limited by guarantee (SC250899), core funded by Membership Subscriptions and by grants from Scottish Natural Heritage, Scottish Government and Charitable Trusts.

We facilitate change: we build collaboration, support and enable partnership working to add value for the environment through leadership and engagement. As the voice for Scotland’s environment, the LINK network exists to support our members in making change happen on the ground for a healthier environment, healthier societies and a healthier planet.

LINK launched its strategy for 2020-2024 on 6 March, read more about it here.
