Fiscal Sustainability Perspectives: Climate Change 

This report, published on 14 March 2024, explores how climate change could affect the Scottish Government’s fiscal sustainability. It considers the potential effects on Scottish public finances from damage created by climate change; the costs of adapting to a changing environment and taking action to meet Scotland’s statutory emissions targets to reach net-zero by 2045. We also discuss the data and information we’d need from the Scottish and UK governments to produce projections of climate change funding and spending.

On Tuesday March 26 we gave evidence on our report to the Finance and Public Administration Committee. You can see a recording of this session here
