Carbon Management Plan 2014

This revised Carbon Management Plan (CMP) sets out the activities that will enable us to reduce our carbon emissions and meet our reduction targets.

Appendix C - Scottish Government Carbon Management Project Register

The Carbon Management Project Register enables opportunity tracking, comparisons of cost effectiveness of different measures, and monitoring of progress towards carbon reduction targets. It therefore also contains scheduling information for project start and implementation dates.

At present the CMPR tool contains over 100 separate low carbon projects proposed for implementation. The CMPR tool is managed by SG Facilities Services Division.
