SCDI Comments on the Announcement of Green Freeport Winning Bids

Responding to the Green Freeport announcement, SCDI Chief Executive Sara Thiam said:

“Now that a decision has been taken to grant Opportunity Cromarty Firth and Forth Green Freeports, we are calling for work to accelerate delivery of their ambitious plans. We also share the disappointment of the unsuccessful bidders. We urge both Governments to work with them on alternative routes to realise their visions. Green freeports can be an important step in Scotland’s transition to a net zero carbon economy, but we must fully unlock the opportunities of clean growth for all parts of Scotland.”
