On 27 March, the Scottish Parliament will debate a motion on the Climate Emergency. In advance of this LINK members issued a briefing highlighting the need for urgent action to tackle climate change. For this to be effective, action should focus on:
- Achieving net zero greenhouse gas emissions as soon as possible
- Ensuring there is no overshoot scenario as this would cause irreparable damage to Scotland’s natural environment
- Rolling out a suite of measures which would enhance the ability of our ecosystems to sequester carbon and increase their resilience to climate change impacts
