The UK government recently set new climate change commitments that will put the UK on course to cut carbon emissions by 78% by 2035. These targets were based on recommendations from the Climate Change Committee. These commitments are to become law and bring forward the current target for reducing carbon emissions by 15 years, which would be a world-leading position.
