Scottish Government: uphold your climate commitments

The Scottish Government must publish its long overdue impact assessment to allow for proper scrutiny of its climate strategy.

We believe the Scottish Government is breaching its own climate commitments.

The Government has pledged to reduce carbon emissions to net zero by 2045, declaring that Scotland’s contribution to global heating will “end, definitively, within one generation”.

But it’s more than two years since it published its £26bn Infrastructure Investment Plan, and it still hasn’t shared an assessment of the plan’s climate impact. This flies in the face of the Climate Change (Scotland) Act 2009, which requires the Government to show how investments are in line with emissions targets.

There’s no time to lose in the fight against the climate crisis. 

That’s why Good Law Project and the Environmental Rights Centre for Scotland will take legal action unless the Government acts urgently to uphold its climate commitments.

If you agree the Government must publish its long overdue impact assessment to allow for proper scrutiny of its climate strategy, add your name and we’ll keep you up to date with this work.
