The Government and the devolved administrations published an updated UK climate change programme on 28 March. It proposes a range of measures to take forward our national response to climate change. These include supporting increased generation from renewable sources, encouraging the installation of energy efficiency measures in households, providing more reliable consumer product information, supporting more sustainable transport choices, introducing higher standards for efficiency in buildings and financing energy efficiency measures for public sector organisations.

The Welsh Assembly Government's environment strategy for Wales and its accompanying action plan, to be published shortly, will provide further details of steps to be taken to address climate change in Wales.
