Climate Change Bill

thumbnail of ebrief Climate Bill june 2018The Scottish Government has published the Climate Change (Emissions Reduction Targets) (Scotland) Bill.

This E-Brief looks at the reason why the Bill’s target of 90% emissions reduction by 2050 is “hugely disappointing.”

With Stop Climate Chaos Scotland, we want the target to be net zero by 2050 at the latest.

UNISON, with the Just Transition Partnership, is also calling for the Just Transition Commission to be put on a statutory basis in the Bill.

Branches are asked to encourage members to take a few minutes to back this SCCS E-Action calling for a stronger Bill, and to support a mass lobby outside the Scottish Parliament on Wednesday 19 September.

A fuller briefing on how we want to see the Bill improved will follow in the autumn.
