Climate Bill debate in Parliament: action needed on sustainable transport

Published 02 April 2019 by Transform Scotland

We have published a parliamentary briefing issued to all Members of the Scottish Parliament ahead of this afternoon’s Climate Bill Stage 1 report.

The briefing welcomes the environment committee’s finding that clear climate pathways need to be found to deliver emission reduction in key sectors such as transport where there is opportunity to be much bolder. We call for government to take further action on transport, the largest source of emissions.

Colin Howden, Director of Transform Scotland, said:

“Active and sustainable transport provides ample further opportunities for reducing climate emissions. There is masses of potential, but much unexplored. Scottish Government needs to engage with Transform Scotland and its members, which include public transport companies and industry world leaders in developing low-carbon transport infrastructure.”
