Scotland’s new climate law will determine the level of our climate action for decades to come, but it’s currently too weak. Will you help us improve it?
In 2016 the Scottish Government pledged to deliver a new climate law that would increase Scotland’s climate ambition in response to the UN Paris Climate Agreement. However, the current proposals fail to meet the ambition required, and imply doing almost nothing extra to tackle climate change between now and 2030.
We’re working to ensure the new Climate Change Act delivers our fair share of global greenhouse gas cuts, and builds a just transition towards a fairer, healthier, zero-carbon Scotland.
To set Scotland on a path consistent with the Paris Agreement aims of keeping global warming below 2ºC, and preferably to 1.5C, we need stronger targets, together with new policies to deliver rapid emissions cuts.
Set new targets to urgently cut Scotland’s emissions
Commit to urgent climate action
The Bill must now pass through three stages in the Scottish Parliament before it can become law; during which time all MSPs will have the chance to debate, vote and suggest improvements to the Climate Bill.
To improve the Bill, we need to work with all parties in the Parliament. Please help us by emailing your MSP today and asking them to support stronger targets.
It may be spring next year before the Bill becomes law, and we need to keep up the pressure throughout the process.
To win this campaign we need people power. With your help we can improve the Climate Change Bill and make sure the new law delivers tough targets and real action to play our part in tackling the climate crisis.
Email your MSPs today, and ask them to help rescue the Bill.
