Meeting Scotland’s climate targets will “be a truly national endeavour”

On Friday 11 October, First Minister Nicola Sturgeon addressed Scotland’s Convention of Scottish Local Authorities (COSLA) annual conference and stated that meeting Scotland’s climate change targets will “need to be a truly national endeavour, where every sphere of government, and every sector – plays their part”. She added that local authorities will continue to make an important contribution, where efforts to reduce transport emissions, promote energy efficiency, and manage waste have already made a significant impact, and commended councils for “setting their ambitions even higher.” She also highlighted that the Scottish government continues to work closely with local authorities and will work with councils to upgrade and further decarbonise Scotland’s bus services, as well as accelerate the work undertaken to pilot and implement Local Heat and Energy Efficiency Strategies.
