The Natural Capital Asset Index has remained about the same for the last decade and is roughly at the same level as in 2000.
The percentage of fish stocks where the catch limit is consistent with scientific guidance remained stable between 2015 and 2016, following a sharp increase in 2015.
Scotland’s carbon footprint has remained stable since 2011, following a declining trend since the peak in 2007.
