Progress Report to Parliament 2020
9 September 2020
On 25 June, the Committee on Climate Change will publish its 2020 Progress Report to Parliament.
This is the Committee’s annual assessment of UK progress in reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and the Committee last published its assessment of UK progress in reducing emissions in 2019, and of adaptation action in England in 2019.
Advice on the Sixth Carbon Budget
The Committee on Climate Change (CCC) will publish its recommendation on the level of the Sixth Carbon Budget in September 2020. The Sixth Carbon Budget, required under the Climate Change Act, will provide ministers with advice on the volume of greenhouse gases the UK can emit during the period 2033-2037.
It will set the path to the UK’s new net-zero emissions target in 2050, as the first carbon budget to be set into law following that commitment.
