Under the Paris Agreement countries agreed to work to limit global temperature rises, it is then up to countries to plan how they will meet this. The EU and its Member State contribution to the Paris Agreement is a -40% reduction in domestic greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 compared to 1990 levels. Individual Member State targets to deliver this overall commitment are currently being negotiated.
UK greenhouse gas emission targets under the EU framework and our domestic Climate Change Act cover the whole of the UK. Devolved Administrations and Local Authorities also already have their own emissions targets and ambitions, and with wider actors in the UK, have an important role to play in contributing to UK emissions reductions.
