UN: Scotland's climate change progress 'exemplary'

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."
