… objectives: Environmental Zero Carbon: Reducing Carbon Emissions Use of fossil fuels releases carbon, forming a layer which traps heat and contributes to temperature rises with consequent changes in weather patterns, creating challenges for the survival and wellbeing of species. To mitigate climate change, carbon reduction will be pursued by applying the energy hierarchy5, especially in relation…

… to buildings and transport. Efficient use of water resources will also be encouraged within Council-owned operations and in the wider community, to save carbon. Reduction of landfill and protection of the natural environment will also be recognised for their role in reducing carbon emissions. Maximising Resilience to the Impacts of Climate Change The delayed effect of carbon emissions on the climate…

As part of this, we must recognise and take responsibility for the negative impacts of our activities, even when they are not visible; this includes…

… looking beyond the carbon released directly from within our boundaries and being accountable for emissions that occur further afield as a result of our increasing rates of consumption, for example through the consumption of goods in the Far East and the effects of their transportation to Scotland. The Net Scottish Emissions Account (NSEA), against which the achievement of Scotland’s greenhouse gas

emissions targets is measured, focuses on carbon emitted from within Scotland’s boundaries (‘territorial’, or ‘production-based’ emissions) and shows a decrease over time; however, the ‘consumption- based’ statistics released alongside these – required by the Climate Change (Scotland) Act – capture a fuller picture in which emissions are shown to be rising during periods that are recorded under NSEA…
