This Government remains firmly committed to meeting our climate change target of an at least 80% emissions reduction by 2050. The fifth carbon budget, which covers the period 2028-2032, is an important step on the way to 2050.

Discussions on this budget are continuing and we will make an announcement as soon as those discussions conclude.
