S5O-00867: Richard Leonard (Central Scotland)

Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 12 April 2017

To ask the Scottish Government what action it is taking to promote technologies that help tackle climate change.

Answered by: Roseanna Cunningham 19 April 2017

As set out in the draft Climate Change Plan, the Scottish Government is committed to working with business leaders and others to co-design policies and proposals which maximise commercial, export and job opportunities. For example, our Scottish Energy Efficiency Programme will support thousands of jobs across Scotland, creating a substantial Scottish market and supply chain for energy efficiency and renewable heat services and technologies and related expertise which is transferable to international markets.
