In June 2018 the Committee on Climate Change (CCC) published the tenth progress report on government’s mitigation activity.

The government response:

  • sets out our progress over the last 12 months and addresses the CCC’s recommendations in its June report
  • provides an update on action in the Devolved Administrations – reflecting the fact that action across the UK is vital to meeting our targets
  • assesses our performance against key metrics, as per our commitment in the Clean Growth Strategy
  • communicates an update on the milestones we committed to in the Clean Growth Strategy, and sets out future milestones to further develop our policies and proposals.
