A blueprint for a ‘fairer, greener, more prosperous nation’
Scotland had set world leading climate change targets. With a target of 42% by 2020, Scotland are ahead of the UK at 34% and well ahead of the EU at 20%. In June 2016 Scotland exceeded its target to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 42% - six years early.
On the 19th January 2017, The Scottish government outlined a new target of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 66% by 2032. This ambitious target includes achieving a fully-decarbonised electricity sector, increased annual woodland creation to at least 15,000 hectares a year, 80% of domestic heat to come from low-carbon heat technologies and increasing the proportion of ultra-low emission new cars and vans registered in Scotland to hit 40%.
Scotland: An inspiring climate change leader
Climate Change Secretary Roseanna Cunningham said the targets demonstrated a ‘new level of ambition’ to build a low-carbon economy and a healthier Scotland.
