Responses to Scottish Climate Change Bill call for evidence

9 March 2017

The Scottish Government has committed to introducing a new Scottish Climate Change Bill. Recognising progress to reduce emissions in Scotland, and the ambition set out in the 2015 Paris Agreement, the Bill will include an ambitious new target of reducing Scottish emissions by more than 50% on a gross basis compared to 1990 levels by 2020.
