New Scot-govt carbon management plan to be published ‘soon’

Scottish Government logoJohn Swinney, Finance Secretary, has announced that the Scottish government’s new carbon management plan will be published ‘in the near future’.

In a written Holyrood reply to Green MSP Alison Johnstone, Swinney said:

“The Scottish Government published its first Carbon Management Plan (CMP) in 2009. It committed the Scottish Government to a 30% reduction in its CO2 emissions by 2020 against 2007-08 baseline levels and contained a range of projects including voltage optimisation, centralised building management systems) and server virtualisation which have been delivered.

“In 2008-09, the offices, laboratories and other buildings used by Marine Scotland, Communities Scotland and the Scottish Building Standards Agency became part of the Scottish Government estate.

These significant structural changes to the Scottish Government estate are reflected in a new CMP that has been developed with the support of The Carbon Trust and which will be published in the near future.”
