This is the technical appendix to chapter 1 of the CCC report: Building a low-carbon economy – the UK’s contribution to tackling climate change.
This is the CCC’s first annual progress report to Parliament. It assesses the progress that has been made by Government so far in reducing emissions and the implications of the recession and ‘credit crunch’ for meeting carbon budgets.
This letter sets out the Committee’s advice on a framework for reducing global aviation emissions.
Building a low-carbon economy – the UK’s contribution to tackling climate change was published on 1 December 2008 and contains the CCC’s recommendations on the 2050 emissions reduction target and advises on the levels of the UK’s first three legally binding carbon budgets for 2008-2022.
In advance of its first advice report to the UK Government on building a low-carbon economy, the Committee on Climate Change was asked to advise on the recommended level of the long-term (2050) target to reduce UK emissions as set out in the Climate Change Act 2008.
