11 Mar 2016

 

UN climate change secretary Christiana Figueres has praised Scotland's progress on climate change. 


Speaking to BBC Radio's Good Morning Scotland programme during a visit to Edinburgh, she said: 


"We do know that Scotland has already been very exemplary to the world because it had all parties approving the 2009 act, with a 42% emissions cut target by 2020. 


"We're already at 38%.


"That is actually quite impressive. The fact that Scotland is already producing 50% of its energy from renewable energies in this time frame is also very impressive."
