Scotland to Measure Carbon Cost for All Government Projects


Though most governments struggle to implement carbon-cutting measures in specific sectors, things seem to be quite different in Scotland, or at least we can hope so for the future. The Scottish government has decided to take into account GHG emissions for all public-sector spending while no other country does that at the moment.

Public Sector Environmental Costs

The move has been designed to let bureaucrats and policymakers consider the environmental costs against the economic benefits. Environmental experts have been assigned the task to prepare a comprehensive framework that will facilitate estimation of the environmental costs for all official projects.
