This consultation asked for views on the extraction of coal in Scotland. Our response emphasised our support for the Scottish Government’s ambitious climate change targets and their view that “…unlimited extraction of fossil fuels is simply incompatible with protecting the planet” and recommended that the Scottish Government should have a policy position of no support for the extraction of coal in Scotland.
