Government policies to drive industrial greenhouse gas emissions reductions include Climate Change Agreements, UK participation in the EU Emissions Trading System and financial incentives for energy efficiency technologies such as Combined Heat and Power. Government is also working collaboratively with eight energy intensive sectors through the 2050 Industrial Roadmaps Programme on actions needed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and increase energy efficiency, while improving competitiveness

In addition, we are looking ahead to our emissions reduction plan which will set out how we will reduce our emissions through the 2020s.
