EMISSIONS

New figures show the country has seen a reduction of nearly 40% in emissions from 1990 to 2014, the second-highest reduction in Western Europe.  In comparison, England achieved a reduction of 34% and the UK as a whole, 33%.

Only Sweden bettered Scotland's figures, with a decline of 54.5% over the same period.  Lang Banks, WWF Scotland Director said "It's great to see more evidence that Scotland is in the vanguard when it comes to tackling climate change in Europe".

Furthermore, ministers plan to introduce a new climate change bill which will set a target to reduce emissions by more than 50% by 2020.
