The Board has agreed a Mission Statement, a Vision and a set of values and principles that demonstrate what we hope to achieve and will guide the way that we will work.
Our Mission Statement is that:
We ensure that Scotland’s environmental laws and standards are complied with, and their effectiveness improved – to achieve Scotland’s ambitions for the environment and climate change.
Our Vision is that:
Scotland’s communities benefit from a high quality environment and are protected from harm through the consistent application of effective environmental laws, which are recognised internationally as setting high standards.
Our Values – that we will strive to be judged by are:
We are independent
We are transparent
We are trusted
We are effective
Our Principles – that will guide the way we work are:
We will target our efforts and resources where we can add most value – focusing where our contribution is needed most or will make most difference.
We will seek to resolve issues through agreement wherever possible – having recourse to our formal powers where we judge it is necessary to deliver the outcome expected.
We will be evidence driven – seeking a wide range of inputs and expertise to inform our work and to support our decisions and advice.
We will be open and transparent – keeping people informed about the progress of our work and providing opportunities to input to and influence it.
We will seek opportunities to work in partnership with others – working closely with all relevant stakeholders to ensure that our collective efforts deliver benefits for environmental protection and enhancement.
