To reduce emissions by 42% by 2020 and 80% by 2050 ( sustainability)
Improve the condition of protected nature sites
Improve the state of Scotland's marine environment
Increase renewable electricity production
Reduce traffic congestion
Improve people's perceptions of their neighbourhood
Improve access to local greenspace
Increase people's use of Scotland's outdoors
Increase the abundance of terrestrial breeding birds: biodiversity
Increase natural capital
Increase the proportion of journeys to work by public or active transport
Reduce waste generated
Reduce Scotland's carbon footprint
In 2014, Greenhouse gas emissions were 45.8% lower than the Baseline Period. This exceeds the percentage reduction required to meet the 2020 target (42%) and is outperforming on the percentage reduction trajectory required to meet the 2050 target (80%).
The proportion of nature sites in a favourable condition increased in 2016, part of a gradual upward trend.
The percentage of fish stocks where the catch limit is consistent with scientific guidance increased in 2015, following a sharp declining trend since 2010. This is largely due to the 2016 Total Allowable Catch for mackerel being set in accordance with scientific advice.
The proportion of Scotland's electricity generated from renewable sources has been increasing fairly steadily since 2003.
Journeys perceived to have been delayed due to traffic congestion fluctuated between 2007 and 2015.
The percentage of people who rated their neighbourhood as a very good place to live increased between 2006 and 2011, but has remained stable since.
The percentage of adults who live within a 5 minute walk of their local greenspace has remained about the same for the last three years.
The percentage of adults making at least one weekly visit to the outdoors has fluctuated since 2006, but remained stable in 2015.
The abundance of terrestrial breeding birds remained stable between 2014 and 2015, following a large increase in 2014.
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 proportion of adults who usually travel to work by public or active transport has remained stable for the last decade.
The amount of household waste generated has decreased by 5% since 2011, remaining stable in 2015.
Scotland's carbon footprint rose fairly steadily to a peak in 2007 before falling sharply in the following years. There was an increase in 2012.
