Climate change

In December 2020 the UK Government announced new emissions targets setting the UK on the path to carbon neutral by 2050, leading the way in tackling climate change globally.

It includes:

  • aiming for at least 68 per cent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by the end of the decade, compared to 1990 levels
  • committing to reduce emissions by the fastest rate of any major economy
  • creating and supporting 250,000 jobs whilst helping to stop the UK’s contribution to climate change
