The 2050 target – achieving an 80% reduction including emissions from international aviation and shipping

This is a report supporting Scope of carbon budgets – Statutory advice on inclusion of international aviation and shipping (April 2011).

This technical report accompanies the Committee on Climate Change’s statutory advice on aviation and shipping in carbon budgets and the 2050 target.  It sets out our scenarios for how the 2050 target to reduce emissions by 80% relative to 1990 levels can be achieved with international aviation and shipping included. These scenarios increase confidence that the target can be delivered and at a cost previously accepted by Parliament.
