The new climate targets set in the Climate Change Act will require significantly raised action, investment and planning to deliver across all sectors in Scotland.
Scotland’s approach to tackling climate emissions must be driven by a transformational Just Transition at a pace and scale that will meet Paris Agreement commitments. This includes our Recovery Plan for coronavirus, the revised Energy Strategy and the now delayed Climate Change Plan.
That’s why Friends of the Earth Scotland, Scottish Environment LINK and Stop Climate Chaos Scotland brought together experts from six key sectors to share their ideas on how we cut emissions and improve lives. Their expert contributions were heard by Just Transition Commissioners and Members of the Scottish Parliament as well as hundreds of people who tuned in to watch from home!
The presentations, including recordings and PDFs, from the sector discussions and the final reflections can be found below.
