In June 2023, the Climate Change Committee (CCC) published its Annual Progress Report to Parliament.

The government response to the report outlines how much progress has been made since March’s Powering Up Britain publications and the progress continuing to be made. The response:

  • reiterates the government’s priorities, demonstrating the UK will continue to have one of the most ambitious targets in the G20, cutting emissions by at least 68% by 2030 on 1990 levels
  • demonstrates the actions we will be taking this year, addresses the CCC’s main areas of concern, and responds to all the CCC’s recommendations
  • demonstrates the progress we are making towards net zero against the metrics outlined in the Net Zero Strategy

Government is acting on 85% of the CCC’s priority recommendations and is acting on the majority of the remaining 273 recommendations - demonstrating our commitment to seizing the economic opportunities presented from the energy transition and net zero and the value of the CCC’s advice.
