RPP2 Check Point Report

A Check Point Report identifying progress in delivering RPP2 policies and proposals has been developed to assist the Board monitoring process. The Check Point Report is a tool used by the Climate Change Delivery Board for monitoring purposes and is not an official Scottish Government publication.

The Check Point Report provides a narrative on progress in delivering each of the policies and proposals in RPP2, and looks ahead to potential future activity.  The report notes the expected abatement over the life of RPP2 (to 2027) for each measure.  Where possible, a re-estimate of overall abatement is made when this differs from that originally anticipated when RPP2 was published in June 2013.  In most cases this will be based on informed judgement and, as such, is an indication of whether there is likely to be a difference in abatement over the period rather than a definitive quantification.  Regular re-estimating of overall abatement is generally not practical due to complexities in modelling.
