Around 75% of Scotland’s carbon footprint is caused by the production, consumption or waste of goods and services. An average of 18.4 tonnes of resources per person per year are used, more than the six-to-eight tonnes per person considered to be sustainable.
The Scottish Government has launched a call for evidence to help inform policy development on reducing consumption of single-use food containers, and other single-use items, aiming to support a move to a more circular economy.
The call for evidence is open until 30 June 2022.
