This set of three documents comprises the Government’s response to our 2015 progress report, ‘Reducing emissions and preparing for climate change.’
The Government’s response is divided into a summary document, addressing the Committee’s five main recommendations, and two further volumes providing more detailed responses on mitigation and adaptation.
The mitigation response addresses the CCC’s 35 detailed recommendations on progress towards meeting carbon budgets. It covers the following sectors: power, industry, buildings, transport, waste and F gas, agriculture, forestry and land use.
The adaptation response addresses the ASC’s 36 detailed recommendations on preparing for the impacts of climate change. It covers activity relating to flooding and drainage, infrastructure resilience, overheating, emergency response, agriculture, the natural environment, business and local government.
