Since 1990 the UK has reduced our greenhouse gas emissions by 44%, while growing our economy by over 75%.
The Net Zero Strategy sets out our long-term plan to end the UK’s domestic contribution to man-made climate change by 2050. However, the government recognises that sustainable economic growth goes further than tackling climate change.
Our response to the Dasgupta Review on the Economics of Biodiversity recognises that nature sustains our economies, livelihoods and well-being, and commits to a nature positive future in which we leave the environment in a better condition than we found it. The world leading Environment Act 2021 supports this ambition.
