Progress Towards Meeting the Interim Climate Target

The Scottish Government have published a report on progress towards meeting the interim target as outlined in the Climate Change (Scotland) Act 2009. 

The interim target is a 42 per cent reduction in 2020 from a 1990 Baseline and the 2050 target is an 80 per cent reduction from the 1990 Baseline. 

The report suggests that the percentage reductions achieved in Scotland’s Net Scottish Emissions Account (NSEA) for the years 2010 to 2013 have been greater than the percentage reductions initially envisaged for those years under the Climate Change (Scotland) Act 2009 and that based on current progress, Scotland is on track to meet its Interim 42 per cent reduction target in 2020 and the 2050 Target. It requires a further reduction in emissions of 6 per cent over the remaining 7 years to achieve the Interim Target.
