Scotland’s natural assets provide a wealth of goods and services which are of benefit to human wellbeing.

Scotland’s natural assets provide a wealth of goods and services which are of benefit to human wellbeing, such as food, fuel, climate regulation and recreation opportunities. To ensure a sustainable future we must balance our economic and social activities with these assets.
