Annex B: Scottish greenhouse gas emissions using categories presented in Scotland's climate change plan.

The Scottish Government's Climate Change Plan was published in February 2018 presenting a strategy to reduce emissions over the period to 2032. The modelling activity supporting this plan used a modified version of the sectoral categories used in the Scottish Greenhouse Gas Emissions publication. The following table presents the latest Scottish emissions data using these alternative categories.
