Scottish Natural Heritage rebrand to NatureScot

Launch of NatureScot

Last year we announced that our organisation would rebrand from Scottish Natural Heritage to NatureScot.

As Scotland continues to manage its response to Covid-19, NatureScot is playing an important role in delivering a green recovery that restores economic and personal wellbeing.

The rebrand to NatureScot is an essential part of our long term strategy to lead Scotland towards a nature-rich future and support investment in nature-based solutions to climate change.

Having successfully made the necessary changes to our ways of working to deal with Covid-19 and noting that Scotland has started to emerge from the lockdown, we are now in a position to formally change our operating name to NatureScot.  This change took place on 24 August 2020.

It is an important turning point after almost thirty years operating as Scottish Natural Heritage.

As Scotland continues to manage its response to Covid-19, we believe that NatureScot is playing a vital role in a delivering a green recovery that supports economic, social and environmental resilience.

We will be raising the profile of NatureScot, and our purpose and goal, in the coming weeks and months, especially through our digital channels.

We’d like you to help us to raise awareness of our rebrand in your organisation and through your networks and channels and a stakeholder pack is available via this link to help you do this.
