We are currently working closely with other Government departments to determine the right approach to reducing emissions in the 2020s.

We will publish the successor to 2011 Carbon Plan, in due course. The new plan will set out our policies and proposals for meeting the UK’s carbon budgets, and will cover all sectors of the economy, including transport, agriculture and buildings.
