Building resilient businesses and identifying the weaknesses within your business is crucial as Scotland moves into a period of great uncertainty. At a time when farmers are being asked to balance the demands of climate change and biodiversity decline, they must also contend with market instability and change public perceptions of farming. In the first of two podcast for the Meeting Market Demand series the Farm Advisory Service (FAS) talks to agricultural consultant, Alexander Pirie (SAC) about the Net Zero Arran initiative. The group launched in January 2020 and has garnered attention for their group approach to tackling climate change and in this podcast we discuss; carbon auditing, targeting joint areas of business vulnerability and grass roots local responses to the challenges facing island communities and the wider challenges of climate change and Brexit.
