Progress on Sustainable Development

How Scottish Government is delivering on Sustainable Development

The Scottish Government's role in delivering on sustainable development is scrutinised through Scottish Parliament, Audit Scotland and the Committee for Climate Change; and challenged through NGOs.

The Committees of the Scottish Parliament will play a role in holding the Government to account as they scrutinise Scottish Bills.

In addition to this, Audit Scotland will report on progress on sustainable development as part of their commitment to reviewing the public sector's achievements in terms of best value.

This is supported by the performance information on the Scotland Performs web page. This provides up to date information on the Government's purpose targets and national outcomes and indicators covering a range of key social, economic, environmental and wellbeing indicators for Scotland. A summary of all Targets and Indicators is given in Performance at a Glance.
