With only nine years left to meet the 2030 target to reduce emissions by 75% it’s crucial that the Scottish Government’s Climate Change Plan update sets out and delivers the transformational changes needed to achieve these reductions and put Scotland rapidly on course to a healthier, fairer, low carbon future.
In response to this urgent need, the Stop Climate Chaos Scotland (SCCS) coalition, of which the Alliance is a proud member, is urging you to get behind its Time for Action: Climate Change Plan update campaign.
The SCCS coalition believes that ambitious action now will benefit communities across Scotland. By 2030, we could be living in a better-connected country with expanded public and active transport. We could have greener and healthier towns and cities, warmer and more energy efficient homes and clean energy that secures good, green jobs and a revitalised natural environment.
In 2021, Glasgow will host the COP26 UN climate summit, crucial to the prospects for an effective global response to the climate emergency. A Climate Change Plan update that delivers the transformative changes we need to cut emissions across all areas of life in Scotland and also champions climate justice at home and abroad will reinforce Scotland’s leadership on this issue at a critical juncture in world history.
