SNP COMMITMENT TO BOLD CLIMATE ACTION AND LEADERSHIP

We are in a nature and climate crisis and strong political leadership is needed.


Under the Scottish National Party (SNP) The Scottish Government Scotland has gained a reputation as a global leader on tackling climate change.


Our natural environment attracts millions of visitors and supports exports of high-quality produce. Maintaining this resource is vital to Scotland’s success.


We are already halfway to reach net-zero carbon emissions by 2045, five years before the rest of the UK.


The key is policy consistency, while Westminster continually flip-flops and changes direction.


Scotland is a renewables powerhouse, with 87.9% of electricity generation from low carbon sources, while Scottish Ministers ensured that neither fracking nor underground coal gasification have a place in Scotland.


Our support framework delivers high quality food production, climate mitigation, adaptation, and nature restoration, planting three times more trees annually than the rest of the UK combined.


Water bills are lower in Scotland than in England, where private water companies allow huge quantities of sewage to pollute.


Our Circular Economy Bill will enable local authorities to reduce waste, emissions, and pressure on the natural environment.


The SNP Government is investing record amounts in flood prevention schemes including Millport and the Garnock Valley; £91 million this year, compared to only £12 million when we took office.


As the climate crisis worsens, we need action, yet Labour has diluted its pledge to cut green investment by a shocking 83%, while the Tories roll back on green pledges.


In sharp contrast, the SNP is committed to bold climate action and leadership.
