Friends of the Earth Scotland warmly welcomes the public consultation on the Scottish Climate Change Bill. However, we believe that if the bill is to deliver the best possible outcomes for Scotland it must include effective and comprehensive carbon budgets and accounting to ensure we are cutting emissions fast enough. It must also include powerful incentives and tough sanctions.
Below we set out a preliminary analysis of the consultation, and highlight in particular, the areas in which we believe the consultation proposals leave room for improvement
