Friends of the Earth Scotland’s submission to the Scottish Parliament Environment, Climate Change and Land Reform committee on the new Climate Change Bill.

Our key points:

  • The Climate Change Bill fails to deliver its objective of raising ambition to deliver the Paris Agreement
  • Its proposed targets require almost no extra effort to 2030, and only modest extra effort thereafter
  • To deliver climate justice and do our fair share of necessary global action, the final Climate Change Act must set stronger targets of at least 77% reduction in emissions by 2030 and reach net-zero emissions by 2040
