CHS Biodiversity Duty Report 2018 - 2020

Children’s Hearings Scotland (CHS), as a public body in Scotland, has a duty under Section 1 of the Nature Conservation (Scotland) Act 2004 to further the conservation of biodiversity - the wildlife, habitats and other forms of nature - in Scotland by how it exercises its functions. This is usually referred to as the ‘biodiversity duty’.

This report is designed to meet the accompanying requirement of Section 36 of the Wildlife and Natural Environment (Scotland) Act 2011 to report on our compliance with the biodiversity duty.
