Scottish Government’s ‘missed opportunities’ highlighted in climate report. The Scottish government has been told their response to climate change is “good, but could still do better” by a climate emergency group. The report from the Climate Emergency Response Group (CERG) said there had been positive progress since the First Minister announced a climate emergency in Spring 2019. The findings noted that despite some delays due to the Covid-19 pandemic, a number of new “green recovery” opportunities have been missed. Scoring the Scottish government’s reaction to the group’s climate proposals, CERG said 33% have a green rating, 57% an amber rating, and 10% have a red rating.
