The Scottish Government is asking for feedback on its proposed update to the Climate Change Act. This consultation ends in three weeks time.
As a member of Stop Climate Chaos Scotland, Eco-Congregation Scotland are asking the First Minister for a strong Scottish Climate Change Act and a prosperous, healthy Scotland:
- Set a target of zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 at the latest, and a reduction of 77% by 2030
- Ensure that future finance budgets are consistent with our climate targets
- Commit to actions that cut emissions and deliver and cleaner, healthier, more prosperous Scotland:
greener farming: set a nitrogen budget for Scotland by 2020
- energy efficient homes: ensure that all homes have at least Energy Performance Rating C by 2025
cleaner transport: phase out the sale of new fossil fuel cars by 2030.
We have already sent campaign post cards to all of our award winning congregations, but there is still time to take part by using the online campaign.
