The UK’s Climate Change Act sets long-term, legally binding targets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. We are working to ensure that it delivers the progress we need.
The Committee on Climate Change’s latest report is clear that we are not on course to meet our carbon targets. The government must do more, and with greater urgency than ever.
Plans for a huge opencast coal mine at Druridge Bay were today formally rejected by Communities Secretary Sajid Javid, on the basis that the environmental impact would be too significant.
The UK government must do more, faster, to meet its legally binding carbon reduction targets, according to the latest report from its advisors.
The government’s new Clean Growth Strategy fails to put us on track to meet legally binding emissions targets.
Flooding, overheating and risks to our food production and supply are some of the biggest threats that face the UK from climate change.
The UK’s Climate Change Act, passed into law in 2008 with near-unanimous cross-party support, is a genuine world leader. It requires that UK greenhouse gas emissions reduce steadily but significantly to 2050 and beyond. And it helps ensure that our transition to a low-carbon economy is smooth, sustainable and cost-effective.
We work to help ensure the Act is a success.
