climtechangeplanThe Scottish Government has published a draft Climate Change Plan which contains detailed proposals to achieve a 66% reduction in Scotland’s greenhouse gas emissions.

Cabinet Secretary for Environment, Climate Change and Land Reform Roseanna Cunningham has said the Scottish Government’s draft Climate Change Plan demonstrates “a new level of ambition” in its work to build a prosperous low carbon economy and a fairer, healthier Scotland.

Scotland has already exceeded its 2020 climate change target by achieving a 42% reduction in emissions six years early. The draft Climate Change Plan raises ambitions higher still by setting out how Scotland can reduce emissions by 66% by 2032.

In response to the draft Climate Change Plan Tom Ballantine, Chair of Stop Climate Chaos Scotland said;

“This new plan paints an attractive vision of the kind of low-carbon society we will be living in in 15 years’ time – a cleaner, healthier, more prosperous Scotland.  However, we have serious concerns about the plan’s lack of new actions to deliver this vision.”

ScottishClimateChangeCommitmentThe leaders of all of Scotland’s main political parties recently committed to set out comprehensive plans on how they’ll address climate change, ahead of next year’s Scottish Parliament election.

Each of the party leaders have personally signed a public commitment to make their manifestos consistent with delivering Scotland’s ambitions on climate change.

The agreement was brokered by WWF Scotland, on behalf of a diverse group of civic organisations, including: Oxfam Scotland, Unison Scotland, the Church of Scotland, Christian Aid Scotland, SCIAF, Stop Climate Chaos Scotland, Friends of the Earth Scotland and RSPB Scotland.

The renewed political focus on reducing Scotland’s contribution to climate change comes in the week that the Scottish Parliament begins its final year of work before the next Holyrood election, and in advance of international climate change talks scheduled to take place in Paris this December.

air-pollution-hearts_15311Scotland has failed to meet its climate change target for the fourth year in a row, latest figures have revealed.

Scottish greenhouse gas emissions fell by 3.6% between 2012 and 2013 to 53 million tonnes of carbon dioxide (MtCO2e).

The Climate Change (Scotland) Act requires a minimum 42% cut in emissions by 2020 and 80% by 2050.

The Scottish government said it was on track to achieving this target and announced measures to reduce emissions.
