Committee on Climate Change report to Scottish Parliament
Scotland must become the first UK nation to set out a net-zero-compatible climate change plan, the Committee on Climate Change will say (Oct 7).
Responding, Claire Mack, Chief Executive of Scottish Renewables, said:
"We welcome the Committee on Climate Change’s 2020 Progress Report to the Scottish Parliament which highlights that Scotland’s renewable energy industry is leading the way in Scotland’s efforts to become a net-zero economy by 2045.
"The report echoes our message that net zero and climate adaptation must be at the heart of government policy. The CCC clearly sets out that Scotland can, and must, become the first UK nation to set out a net-zero-compatible plan to achieve our climate commitments and deliver a green recovery with renewable energy as its foundation."
