Nicola Sturgeon announces deposit return scheme for Scotland.

Nicola Sturgeon announces deposit return scheme for Scotland.

‘The Scottish Government has set a significantly more ambitious target to phase out petrol and diesel cars and vans than the one recently set by the UK Government in Westminster. 2032 recognises the need to address the health concerns of air pollution, the climate risk of carbon emissions and the huge economic opportunity of a rapid take-up of ultra-low emission technologies. This is what real leadership looks like. If the ambition is there, the opportunities and solutions are available, and Sturgeon’s Government is proposing a whole package, ranging from supporting electric vehicle charging infrastructure in densely populated areas to electrified train networks. Today’s announcement shows Nicola Sturgeon’s vision for global environmental leadership. The ball is now in Theresa May’s court.’
