Scottish Energy Seminar : “How can Scotland achieve its 2050 emissions reduction target?”

The Scottish Government has proposed to increase its greenhouse gas emissions target to achieve a reduction of 90% below 1990 levels by 2050. his seminar asks the questions central to the issue of adopting these new targets in Scotland. How will the targets work in practice? Are reductions on this scale realisable? How can costs and risks be mitigated and benefits maximised? What should be the key elements of Scotland’s strategy?

Venue:The University of Edinburgh Business School, 29 Buccleuch Place, Edinburgh, EH8 9JS
