three-quarters, 76 per cent, of respondents said the Scottish Government
should reduce climate change emissions by “investing more in improving the
energy efficiency of homes across Scotland”, up from 67 per cent in 2016.

Atotal of 68 per cent said they want the Government to invest in projects
that reduce emissions, up from 59 per cent in 2016. There were 72 per cent
who believe more should be d one to help people heat their homes from
renewable sources. Only 59 per cent thought so in the previous year.
