We welcome extended fracking moratorium

We welcome the announcement by Energy Minister Paul Wheelhouse on 03 October 2017 that there will be a continuation of the current moratorium on fracking in Scotland and a vote in Holyrood later this month.

We believe that in order to achieve the targets set out in the Paris Climate Change Agreement, and by the Scottish Government and Parliament, in terms of reducing carbon emissions we need to maintain and increase momentum towards clean, sustainable, renewable energy sources and away from the use of fossil fuels.

We recognise that there needs to be a just transition from existing energy production toward new low carbon sources of energy.
