Climate Change Plan: monitoring report 2019

24 December 2019

Article: 53/5106

On 17 December 2019, the Scottish Government published its second annual report monitoring progress against the 85 policy output and implementation indicators established in the Climate Change Plan: third report on proposals and policies 2018-2032.

This report is made up of a series of sectoral chapters, containing information on the policy output and implementation indicators set out in the corresponding chapter of the Climate Change Plan.

When the first monitoring report was published in 2018 it was too early to make an assessment of the majority of the indicators, and a comprehensive assessment of whether the plan was fully on track was not possible. The number of indicators in this position has reduced, but it remains the case that it is too early to make an assessment for the majority of the indicators as data is not yet available for the period covered.

Of the indicators where on-track assessments have been possible, seven are assessed as being on-track (across the electricity, transport and forestry sectors) and three are assessed as being off-track (across waste and peat). Further information on these indicators, and the actions being taken where indicators are off-track, are set out in the body of the report.
