13. The Scottish Government uses the Scottish Greenhouse Gas Inventory to monitor its emissions reduction targets on an annual basis. This Inventory is compiled in line with international guidance from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and is reported by source sector (such as energy supply) and by greenhouse gas category (such as carbon dioxide). (See information at the National Atmospheric Emissions Inventory Given the relative scale of CCF projects within the wide range of factors that influence emissions in the Inventory, it is unlikely that the specific contribution from CCF activity could be identified.
