£3.5m fund for climate change unveiled in Scotland

£3.5m fund for climate change unveiled in Scotland
Funding worth a total of £3.5 million has been allocated to several projects in Scotland.

The investment will be shared by 37 programmes north of the border, which are working to fight climate change in their communities by improving energy efficiency and encouraging sustainability.

In total, the schemes will bring down carbon emissions by some 250,000 tonnes.

This is the equivalent of taking more than 80,000 vehicles off UK roads, the Scottish government claims.

Environment secretary for Scotland, Richard Lochhead, said in a statement: "It is heartening to meet successful applicants here today, the real trailblazers of climate change, and see exactly how communities are confronting carbon emissions.

"I want to see even more communities stepping up to the challenge of reducing their carbon emissions and their impact on the local and global environment."

The UK has a target of reducing overall emissions by 80 percent on 1990 levels by 2050.
