Figures published by the Scottish government on Tuesday 12 June estimate that from 1990-2016 the country reduced its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 49%. The country also surpassed its 2016 Climate Change Act goal of emitting less than 44.9MtCO2e in 2016 by emitting an estimated 38.6MtCO2e. In 2016 transport – including international aviation and shipping – accounted for the largest proportion of the country’s emissions and energy supply was the fourth highest contributor after seeing the largest decrease in emissions by sector since 1990 when it was the main contributor. In 2016 42.9% of Scotland’s electricity came from renewables – the single largest source of supply.
