UK ‘off track’

The UK government is ‘off track’ to meet its target of bringing all greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2050 according to the latest report from the government’s own Committee on Climate Change (CCC).

For example, the UK was supposed to be insulating 545,000 lofts a year in 2019. Instead, it insulated just 27,000.

The CCC said the UK must now ‘seize the opportunity to make the COVID-19 recovery a defining moment in tackling the climate crisis’.
