Friends of the Earth Scotland welcomes the opportunity to contribute to the debate on a ‘greener Scotland’ ahead of the Executive debate on Wednesday 13 June. We welcome many of the commitments made in the SNP manifesto and those of other parties. In this briefing, we focus primarily on three of these: climate change, energy policy and waste policy. In particular, since climate change is the greatest challenge facing Scotland, we welcome the Executive commitment to early introduction of a Scottish Climate Change Bill.
