Air and energy accounts for Scotland
This report details a study to produce a set of ‘air and energy accounts’ for Scotland for all years from 1998 to 2018, equivalent to ONS UK Environmental Accounts1 tables on Emissions and Energy. The study has been commissioned by ClimateXChange (CXC) on behalf of the Scottish Government in support of its implementation of the policies and proposals within the current Climate Change Plan2 published in 2018. The Scottish Greenhouse Gas Inventory3 is the key data source for understanding the origins and magnitudes of Scotland’s emissions. The inventory is compiled in line with international guidance from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). Data are reported by source sector and by greenhouse gas.
