SEPA misses carbon target

The Scottish Environment Protection Agency has again missed its emissions reductions target. It expects a sharp drop in 2016

The Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) has failed again to meet its greenhouse gas emissions reduction target, a 30 January report shows.

The sustainability report, covering 2012-13, shows emissions were 10% below a 2006-07 baseline but increased by 2.4% year on year.

SEPA had previously expected to reduce emissions by 25% during 2013 after its 2010/11 report stated it would miss the target originally set for 2012. Total emissions for 2012-13 were more than 3,600 tonnes of CO2 equivalent.
