This letter from Lord Deben responds to a request from Roseanna Cunningham MSP (Cabinet Secretary for Environment, Climate Change and Land Reform) for advice on the best design of a statutory climate target framework, to further inform the new Scottish Climate Change Bill.

In the letter the Committee on Climate Change recommends that the best design of a statutory climate target framework is to assess compliance with targets against a ‘GHG Account’ in the short term, with regular reviews – at least every five years – to ensure that the framework remains based on the scientific evidence.
