"The renewable energy industry, which employs 17,700 people, generates £5.5 billion in turnover and displaces millions of tonnes of carbon in Scotland each year, must play a key role in the delivery of the Scottish Parliament’s promises. With consistent policy-making to reflect the bold targets contained in this Bill and the declaration of a Climate Emergency, Scotland can continue to lead the world on climate change.”
