Government off course to meet carbon budgets – Committee for Climate Change

Last week, the Committee for Climate Change published its 2018 Progress Report which stated that, despite rapid reduction in emissions from the power sector, the Government are set to miss its legally-binding carbon targets due to lack of progress in other sectors such as transport, agriculture and buildings.

The report set out four key messages to Government:

  • Support the simple, low cost options.
  • Commit to effective regulation and strict enforcement
  • End the chopping and changing of policy
  • Act now to keep long term options open
