Government of Gibraltar publishes first review of performance indicators to demonstrate progress on tackling the climate emergency

Gibraltar has today published its first review of performance indicators, under its new commitment to transparently demonstrate progress on tackling the climate emergency. These indicators will enable the tracking of both emissions and progress in implementing measures and policies that drive emissions reductions, in four main sectors: electricity generation, energy efficiency (EE)/buildings, transport, and waste.

Of the 54 progress indicators and policy milestones, Gibraltar has met 14 of them, with a further 15 policy milestones ‘in progress’. Many of the key indicators have been assessed as ‘uncertain’; this is largely due to data availability, which will be improved in future years as part of ongoing continual improvements. In total, 11 key indicators were deemed uncertain due to data limitations.

Key successes include meeting indicators for reducing energy sector emissions, opening the new LNG power plant, investment into renewables research, implementing the feed-in tariff, exceeding the public lighting upgrade target and smart metering, awareness campaign roll out, energy action plan publication, increasing cycle parking, EV charging point requirements in developments and EV uptake.
