The UK is projected to overachieve against the third carbon budget. Current projections for the fourth and fifth carbon budgets suggest that we could deliver 97 per cent and 95 per cent of our required performance against 1990 levels, and we are working to implement the ambitious policies and proposals set out in our Clean Growth Strategy to enable us to meet our future carbon budgets.
