Performance Improving

Chart

In 2014, Greenhouse gas emissions were 45.8% lower than the Baseline Period. This exceeds the percentage reduction required to meet the 2020 target (42%) and is outperforming on the percentage reduction trajectory required to meet the 2050 target (80%).

Chart

The proportion of nature sites in a favourable condition increased in 2016, part of a gradual upward trend.

Chart

The percentage of fish stocks where the catch limit is consistent with scientific guidance increased in 2015, following a sharp declining trend since 2010. This is largely due to the 2016 Total Allowable Catch for mackerel being set in accordance with scientific advice.

Chart

The proportion of Scotland's electricity generated from renewable sources has been increasing fairly steadily since 2003.

Performance Maintaining

Chart

Journeys perceived to have been delayed due to traffic congestion fluctuated between 2007 and 2015.

Chart

The percentage of adults making at least one weekly visit to the outdoors has fluctuated since 2006, but remained stable in 2015.

Chart

The abundance of terrestrial breeding birds remained stable between 2014 and 2015, following a large increase in 2014.

Chart

The Natural Capital Asset Index has remained about the same for the last decade and is roughly at the same level as in 2000.

Chart

The proportion of adults who usually travel to work by public or active transport has remained stable for the last decade.

Chart

The amount of household waste generated has decreased by 5% since 2011, remaining stable in 2015.
