23/12/2019 – Publié le 17 December 2019 – « New ambitious actions needed for a Net Zero Scotland » devient la feuille de route de l’Ecosse.
Scotland must match the ambition of its world-leading Net Zero 2045 target with decisive action to strengthen climate change policy in all parts of the economy. Decisions over the next 12 months are likely to determine the direction of the next 25 years.
Independent advice to government on building a low-carbon economy and preparing for climate change.
This is the eighth annual Progress Report to the Scottish Parliament, required by Scottish Ministers under the Climate Change (Scotland) Act 2009. It assesses Scotland’s progress in achieving its legislated targets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Overall, greenhouse gas emissions reduced by 3% in 2017, compared to a 10% fall in 2016. The fall was again led by the power sector, due in large part to Scotland’s first full year of coal-free electricity generation. Recent performance in other sectors shows only incremental improvement at best and, unless emissions reductions are delivered economy-wide, Scotland is at risk of missing its new interim target of a 56% reduction in emissions by 2020.
