1. Our progress so far

Scotland is a world leader in tackling climate change and Scotland’s transition to a more prosperous, low carbon society is already well underway. 

In 2015, Scotland had reduced its emissions by 41% from the 1990 baseline[2], and in 2017 Scotland generated 68.1% of its electricity requirements from renewables[3]. Scotland’s success in decarbonising electricity paves the way for transformational change across all sectors of the economy and society, particularly as electricity will be increasingly important as a power source for heat and transport.
