In our commission for advice on the implications of the Paris Agreement for the UK’s long-term targets, we have asked the Committee on Climate Change to provide evidence on how further reductions in our emissions might be delivered across all sectors of the economy. We will consider the CCC’s advice carefully when it is received.
