About this book

In order to adapt to the impact of climate change, and in light of the findings of the Stern Review, this Government Bill seeks to ensure the UK meets its long-term goal of reducing carbon dioxide emissions by creating an economically credible reduction pathway to 2050 and beyond. Measures include: creating statutory emissions reduction targets and carbon budgeting; the creation of an independent advisory body (the Committee on Climate Change) to advise the Government and devolved administrations on how to reduce emissions over time and across the economy; new powers to enable the Government and the devolved administrations to introduce new domestic trading schemes to reduce emissions through secondary legislation; and a system of annual reporting on the UK's greenhouse gas emissions.
