We have an ambitious UK wide target to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by at least 80% by 2050 compared to 1990 levels, supported by ambitious carbon budget targets which are set until 2032. Our focus is on delivering these targets through implementation of our Clean Growth Strategy. We welcome all ambitious targets set by devolved administrations as they count towards are overall UK targets.
