This report on the greenhouse gas abatement potential of increasing the use of timber in construction in the UK, led by the BioComposites Centre at Bangor University, informed the Committee on Climate Change’s 2018 report on the role of Biomass in a low-carbon economy..
This overview of biopolymers by Professor Callum Hill of JCH Industrial Ecology Ltd was commissioned to inform the Committee on Climate Change’s 2018 report on the role of Biomass in a low-carbon economy.
This report by Cambridge Econometrics was produced to support the Reducing UK emissions: 2019 Progress Report to Parliament, the Committee's annual update which assesses how well the UK is doing when it comes to reducing its greenhouse gas emissions.
The Met Office has produced a technical briefing note summarising the latest scientific understanding on time lags in the climate system, and what this implies for how much climate change the world is committed to in the short-term for different emissions trajectories.
The Adaptation Committee contracted Paul Watkiss Associates to assess how climate change might affect the ability of Government to achieve existing policy outcomes.
Research to update the evidence base for indicators of climate-related risks and actions in England (ADAS)Supporting research
The ADAS report presents the results of work commissioned by the Committee on Climate Change to update a number of the indicators of and evidence bases on climate-related risks and actions in England.
Options for incorporating embodied and sequestered carbon into the building standards framework (AECOM)Supporting research
There is potential to reduce carbon emissions further, by expanding the framework to address and drive down the lifecycle carbon associated with buildings, incorporating both embodied and sequestered carbon. This report, produced by AECOM for the Committee on Climate Change's Biomass in a low-carbon economy report, examines the options available for doing so.
This report, produced by Currie & Brown and AECOM for the Committee on Climate Change, summarises the research undertaken to inform the Committee’s recommendations on new build standards.
This is the Committee's annual report to Parliament, assessing progress in reducing UK emissions over the past year. It finds that UK action to curb greenhouse gas emissions is lagging behind what is needed to meet legally-binding emissions targets.
This report sets out the Adaptation Committee’s latest assessment of progress in preparing for climate change in England, and provides a first evaluation of the Government’s second National Adaptation Programme.
