A ministerial taskforce has been appointed to get to grips with Scotland’s greenhouse gas emissions after reduction targets were missed for the third year in a row.

A Cabinet sub-committee on climate change will aim to ensure co-ordination of the Government strategic response to emissions, which rose slightly (0.8%) in 2012, bucking a general downward trend over the last decade.
