Statement on the Energy Charter Treaty

My SNP colleagues and I share your concern for ISDS clauses – and campaigned against the UK Government’s inclusion of them in its Australia deal because they threaten our climate change goals.

We continue to be outspoken on the need to ensure no new fossil fuel projects which threaten our path to net zero should be started.

The SNP Scottish Government are committed to a just transition to net-zero by 2045, with an ambitious interim 2030 target of a 75% reduction in emissions – the most ambitious legally-binding commitment for the next decade that we are aware of for any country in the world.

Scotland’s emissions are already down by well over 50% (since the 1990 baseline), and we continue to outperform the UK as a whole in delivering long-term reductions.

 

My SNP colleagues and I continue to call on the UK Government to prioritise our Net Zero targets and addressing climate change.
