I want us to become the cleanest, greenest society on earth, and inspire countries around the world to follow our lead, and to continue building on the excellent progress this government has made in tackling climate change and improving our environment. The Committee will bring together ministers responsible for domestic and international climate change policy, provide a forum to hold departments to account for their actions to combat climate change and oversee the UK’s preparations to host the UN’s major climate summit COP26, in November 2020. As has been the practice under successive Governments, information relating to the proceedings of Cabinet Committees is not disclosed.
