Committee on Climate Change's 2016 progress report: Government response

Government response to the Committee on Climate Change's 2016 progress report on meeting carbon budgets



In June 2016, the Committee on Climate Change (CCC) published their eighth Progress report on Government’s mitigation activity.

In advance of the forthcoming emissions reduction plan, the Government response sets out the Government’s commitment to its domestic climate change targets and provides background to our current policy approach. It covers the following sectors: power, buildings, industry, transport, waste and F gas, agriculture, forestry and land use.
