Scottish Environment LINK welcomes the setting of a Scottish Target for reducing carbon emissions and the commitment to report annually to the Parliament on progress. In order to ensure the effective implementation of the Climate Change Programme, LINK would also like to see:
- Annual targets and annual reports on progress towards current targets on greenhouse gas emissions, energy efficiency and % of electricity from renewables.
- Clear sectoral targets for reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and energy conservation/efficiency
- Continued commitment to achieving the target to stabilise road traffic levels at 2001 by 2011, and annual targets and an action plan to achieve this
