Green is Working for you!

During the Autumn of 2012, we asked you to send us photos explaining why Green is Working for you. We got tons of inspiring photos, and on 3rd December we handed a selection of them to #10 Downing Street so that David Cameron could see your messages.

Government falls short of getting climate change promise back on track

Thursday 20th September 2012

The Scottish Government has failed to sufficiently use today’s draft Budget as an opportunity to turn things around and get Scotland back on track to meet future climate change targets, one of Scotland’s largest civil society coalitions has highlighted.

Green is Working!

It’s time David Cameron started taking our Green Economy seriously

We know that the UK's Green Economy is working. Last year, while the UK's economy struggled, our green economy flourished. In fact, 1/3 of the UK's economic growth came from green business.

This is good news: With climate change impacts already being felt around the world by wildlife and the world’s poorest communities, we need to do all we can to fight it.

SCCS writes to First Minister about climate change concerns

Friday 20th July 2012

Stop Climate Chaos Scotland has today written to the First Minister, Alex Salmond MSP, to highlight concerns about Scotland’s action on climate change.

This follows the publication of data earlier this week that shows that the first legally-binding emissions reduction target set under the Scottish Climate Change Act has not been met. Indeed, the latest data shows that Scotland’s emissions increased rather than decreased.

Scottish Government fails first climate test

Serious concerns raised as emission target is missed

Tuesday 17th July 2012

The Scottish Government’s failure to meet the first target set by the Climate Change Act marks an extremely worrying start to the implementation of this legislation. Today’s announcement that Scotland emitted more greenhouse gases in 2010 than the previous year, means ambition has not been matched by action.

The figures for 2010 were released today and show that Scotland’s greenhouse gas emissions increased by nearly 2% from 2009.
