Recommendations

further effort is needed to maximise the community ownership of renewable energy schemes covered by the 'community and locally-owned' target

plans to replace fossil fuel heating systems with low carbon alternatives should start earlier

the Plan should commit to upgrading Scotland's homes to an EPC rating of 'C' by 2025

the Industry chapter should not be allowed to rely on an EU scheme we will almost certainly not be part of after Brexit, and needs to spell out actions which will reduce emissions for Scotland's largest industrial plants

the Plan should say how much carbon reduction each proposal and policy is supposed to deliver over time

the Plan should be used as the foundation of an industrial plan which marshals the investment needed for a just transition away from fossil fuels in order to deliver a fairer and more equal Scotland
