PBCCD Reporting is Live from 1 July

19 July 2019

Public Sector Climate Change Reporting

Scotland’s ambitious national legislation and action plans are driving progress on emissions reduction and climate action. Public bodies have a key role to play in leading delivery of these national targets and influencing wider action. Annual reporting is critical to measuring progress and driving better decision making.

Scottish public bodies are required to submit annual reports by 30 November using the Scottish Government's Public Bodies Climate Change Duties (PBCCD) online reporting platform, ProcXed.

ProcXed, opened on 1 July. The platform is open until 30 November and can be accessed online. Public sector organisations can upload data and information for the 2018/19 reporting period. Details on how to login; set a new password; create a new user account and obtain a list of colleagues with access can be found in the Public Bodies Climate Change Duties guidance on our website. 

Submission date

All reports are due by 30 November 2019. We will send periodic reminders to reporting members as we approach the deadline.

Updated guidance

Links to the updated guidance for 2019 can be found in our resources section. These updated 2019 guidance documents replace all former versions. These guides, along with other resources to support reporting, are available on the SSN website.


This year we have provided new guidance on compliance and details of this can be found in the 2019 Tips for Online Reporting, which is also available online.

Emission factors 

2019 emission factors have already been updated for academic institutions so Part 3 question 3a will auto-calculate total emissions for each source entered.

Keep in touch!

Guidance and support for reporting is available to all SSN members as are other resources such as the Carbon Footprint & Project Register tool. These tools can all be found on the Resources area of our website or by contacting the team on:
