Criteria

Points awarded for each of the following criteria:
- The council has published an annual report since 1st January 2022
- The annual report is easy-to-read
- The annual report includes reporting on progress towards the council's climate action plan SMART targets.

Clarifications

We have chosen the date 1st of January 2022 to ensure that the report is being issued on a yearly basis, while allowing for some delays.

"Easy to read" will be defined as clearly meant for public reading, and may include features such as a contents page, an executive summary, definitions for acronyms or complex language, simple English wherever possible, and graphics or tables to aid comprehension and navigation.

Scottish councils are obliged to publish statutory annual reports which will meet the criteria for an annual report, but they must release a more easy-to-read version with reference to SMART targets for further points.
