Submission to Parliament on the new Climate Change Bill
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
