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.
