Scottish Carbon Footprint Down 25%

New statistics published by the government have revealed that the carbon footprint of Scottish households has fallen by a quarter.

The statistics claim a fall from 2.46 tonnes of carbon per person since 2009 – with the introduction of the Scottish Climate Change Act – to 1.84 tonnes in 2017.

The results have been praised by WWF Scotland who have been encouraged by the adoption of cleaner power and heating options available to households.

The statistics do however show a great variability in the results across different local authorities.

The biggest fall in carbon footprint was seen across the highlands with a fall of 30.3%. By contrast, the smallest fall, 21.6%, was seen in the West Lothian region.

Gina Hanrahan, Acting Head of Policy of WWF Scotland, stated: “These figures show that individuals across Scotland and governments at every level have played a part in cutting the climate damage of our home energy usage.”

“A new Climate Change Bill this year is an opportunity to double down on our commitments to make our homes more energy efficient, to increase the use of renewables to heat homes and put Scotland on the path to a zero carbon future.”
