Programme for Government 2019-20
The Programme for Government sets out some of the next steps on Scotland’s journey to net zero emissions and raises ambition in light of the emergency we face. We welcome the fact that it contains a range of significant, cross-portfolio commitments to tackle the Global Climate Emergency and believe that the measures will both reduce emissions and support sustainable and inclusive growth, promote wellbeing, and create a fairer society.
We are pleased to see commitment to a Circular Economy Bill and a Good Food Nation Bill, along with support for active and sustainable travel, public engagement and behaviour change and measures to tackle fuel poverty and biodiversity included in the Programme.
We look forward to working with the Scottish Government to deliver the Climate Challenge Fund, Eco-Schools Scotland and Climate Ready classroom and to continuing to support individuals, businesses, communities and schools in making the transition to a low carbon future.
