Scottish Greenhouse Gas Statistics

The Scottish Government today announced the latest Scottish Greenhouse Gas Statistics which highlighted that the interim target for 2021 has not been met.

Morag Watson, Director of Policy at Scottish Renewables, said:

“Today’s announcement is another wake up call for The Scottish Government.

“We are in a climate emergency but the pace of decision making and action is falling short of what is needed. Time is running out for the government to put in place a proper plan for how we accelerate our nation’s ambitions for transitioning to net-zero.

“The renewable energy industry is already meeting most of Scotland’s electricity demand and we know we can do so much more to help reduce emissions.

“We are ready to work with the Scottish Government to ensure that the right conditions are put in place now in order to deliver a cleaner, greener nation.”
