Top technologies for reducing farm emissions


A new report looks at options for reducing carbon emissions from Scottish farms. The analysis indicates that the 20 technology options considered could reduce emissions by between 9 and 150 kt CO2e GHG annually if they were implemented to their fullest potential across Scotland.

As well as reducing emissions, the analysed technologies would also have other positive environmental effects with regards to for example soil or water quality.

Tender invitation:
RPP3 evidence reviews


The Scottish Government is inviting tenders for three sectoral evidence reviews into potential wider impacts of climate change mitigation measures as part of the RPP3 process.

The reviews will identify the most robust quantitative models and tools to enable quantification and, where possible, monetisation of the potential wider impacts of climate change mitigation actions which would be relevant to the Scottish context. They will also produce a synthesis of qualitative evidence which indicates the direction (positive / negative) and potential magnitude of the potential wider impacts of climate change mitigation actions which would be relevant to the Scottish context.

Evidence Review of the Potential Wider Impacts of Climate Change Mitigation are invited for:
Built Environment,  Reference No: MAY245862
Transport, Reference No: MAY245860
Agriculture/Land Use, Reference No: MAY245861
