The aim of the proposed Scottish Climate Change Bill published by the Scottish Government on the 29th January 2008, is to create mandatory climate change targets to reduce Scotland's emissions and will create new legislative means to do so. This will provide business and society with a clear signal from Government of its seriousness in tackling this issue and will provide Scotland with the certainty it needs to make the right choices now. The Bill will signal to the international community Scotland's serious intent to contribute to the global effort to mitigate climate change and provide a strong example to other countries showing what can be done.
