Biodiversity and Ecosystems

ScottishPower aims to deliver a net positive impact on biodiversity and ecosystems.

Our activities have the potential to influence habitats and species across a wide range of terrestrial and marine environments in which we build, operate, and maintain the infrastructure that will help us all live cleaner and greener lives. We must play a proactive role in engaging with and contributing to national and international goals.

We are already making a difference:

  • Commenced multi-year study of Whooper Swan migration and behaviour in relation to offshore windfarms
  • Funding of seagrass and oyster restoration in the Firth of Forth by the ScottishPower Foundation
  • Trialling the Forest Design Concept, resulting in a novel replanting approach for networks linear infrastructure, utilising ‘low and slow’ growing shrubs and trees.
