Advice on the design of Welsh carbon targets
Advice on the design of Welsh carbon targets sets out the Committee’s recommendations on developing emissions targets for Wales, following a request from the Welsh Government.
The Welsh Government has committed to reducing emissions in Wales by at least 80% on 1990 levels by 2050. This includes interim emissions targets to 2040 and five-yearly carbon budgets to 2050. The level of the targets and budgets is currently under consideration.
