Trust welcomes ambitious targets to combat climate change

Responding to the Scottish Parliament’s vote to pass a Climate Change Bill which sets ambitious new targets to tackle emissions, Jo Pike, Chief Executive of the Scottish Wildlife Trust said:

“To achieve these ambitious targets it is clear that every part of our society urgently needs to make radical changes. At the same time, we must see a much greater, and more strategic, investment in nature.”

Jo Pike, Chief Executive 

“We welcome the continued international leadership shown by both the Scottish Government and the Scottish Parliament on addressing climate change, and particularly the ambitious new target to reduce emissions by 75% by 2030.

“To achieve these ambitious targets it is clear that every part of our society urgently needs to make radical changes. At the same time, we must see a much greater, and more strategic, investment in nature. This means not only protecting and restoring carbon-rich habitats including peatlands, woodlands and kelp forests, but also greening our towns and cities, and ensuring that the environment is put at the heart of decision making.

“We look forward to the opportunity to help the Scottish Government produce an ambitious plan which ensures that Scotland can meet the twin challenges of fighting climate change and reversing biodiversity loss.”
