COSLA RESPONSE TO SCOTTISH GOVERNMENT DRAFT CLIMATE CHANGE PLAN

Councillor Stephen Hagan, COSLA Development, Economy and Sustainability Spokesperson said today (Thursday) that action must meet ambition if Scotland is to meet its climate change targets.  
 
He said: “We welcome the Climate Change Plan announced by the Cabinet Secretary today. Local government is fully committed to combatting climate change and is critical to the delivery of the plan. However, action must match the ambition in the plan because it is clear we face some very tough challenges in the years ahead. I believe that Scottish local authorities have demonstrated clear leadership and a passion for making a difference and the vigour we have shown will be essential if Scotland is to meet the targets laid out by Government.”
