What would a climate-friendly UK mean for you?
Electric cars, the end of gas boilers, green jobs, more trees and less meat are all part of government advisers’ net zero plan
A cleaner, greener future is set out in a detailed new route map towards ending the UK’s climate emissions by 2050 from the Climate Change Committee, the government’s official advisers.
“These stretching targets will see climate policies increasingly overlap with everyday life, bringing changes in the cars we drive and how we heat our homes,” said Jonathan Marshall, at the Energy and Climate Intelligence Unit. “The overwhelming backing among the British public for climate action means that these measures are likely to be popular and well supported, as long as well-thought policies are used to bring about change.”
