The Climate Emergency Response Group (CERG) published a report on funding the 12 immediate actions for Scotland’s Climate Emergency Response on 9 January.
The report provides an estimate for the Scottish budget requirement in 2020-21 in the context of a three-year budgetary commitment to five policy proposals. These proposals are an Agricultural Transformation Fund, four Green Growth Accelerator projects, Zero Emission Cities, building retrofit and a heat pump sector deal.
The 2020-21 budget proposal is £507mn, while the estimated three-year commitment is £2.3bn.
Seven other immediate policy actions do not require capital spend but do require sufficient civil service capacity deployment to develop and implement.
