In 2009, the Scottish Parliament passed unanimously the most ambitious climate change legislation anywhere in the world. Eight years on, we are now publishing our Third Report on Proposals and Policies, the Climate Change Plan ( CCP), which will take us to 2032.

Laid before the Scottish Parliament by the Scottish Ministers under section 35 of the Climate Change (Scotland) Act 2009, February 2018.
