The Everyone campaign, a consortium of 26 Scottish environmental groups representing 500,000 people, has published a report that attempts to tie politicians to the pledges they made during the Scottish Executive elections in May this year.
The report, entitled Everyone's Watching, details what the Executive must do to meet the environmental pledges it made in its Partnership Agreement, a blueprint for policy-making in Scotland over the next four years.
"The recommendations we are making are not rocket science. They are just common sense," said Lloyd Austin, vice-chairman of Scottish Environment Link, whose members include the National Trust for Scotland and Friends of the Earth Scotland.
"Among the recommendations are a number of acid tests, which we believe must be addressed if real progress is to be made," he added.
The report was delivered to each member of the Scottish Parliament last week when Ross Finnie, Minister for the Environment and Rural Development, appeared in front of the Parliament's Environment and Rural Development Committee.
