Scotland world leader on climate change

Scotland’s reputation as a world leader in climate change has been reinforced at the UN Summit on Sustainable Development in Rio.

Environment and Climate Change Minister Stewart Stevenson met with the Mexican Government to discuss the importance of climate change legislation for sustainable development, and he praised Mexico’s commitment to tackling climate change.

Mexico is now the third country to introduce legislation with binding targets on climate change, behind Scotland and the UK.
