Climate Change Plan: third report on proposals and policies 2018-2032 (RPP3) - summary

Overview of our Climate Change Plan 2018-2032, setting out how we will continue to drive down emissions over the period to 2032.

8. Our emissions reductions pathway to 2032

The Climate Change Plan presents proposals and policies to meet Scotland’s annual emissions reduction targets to 2032. This is done through a sectoral approach, and each sector has an ‘emissions envelope’. The seven sectors are: electricity; buildings; transport; industry; waste; land use, land use change and forestry (LULUCF); and agriculture. Figure 2 below illustrates the decarbonisation pathway, based on the Scottish Greenhouse Gas Inventory (2015) representing an emission reduction of 66% by 2032 compared to baseline levels.
