The UK’s transition to a resilient, low-carbon economy is in danger of being derailed by a lack of Government action on climate change, the Committee on Climate Change says.
This report sets out the Adaptation Sub-Committee's second assessment of the National Adaptation Programme, which drives action to prepare for climate change impacts.
This report is the Committee on Climate Change's ninth annual assessment of UK progress in reducing emissions and meeting carbon budgets.
This synthesis report summarises the key recommendations from the Committee on Climate Change and the Adaptation Sub-Committee's respective 2017 Reports to Parliament.
This letter sets out the Adaptation Sub-Committee's recommendations to Defra about the third round of reports under the Adaptation Reporting Power.
This report presents the findings of a review by the Adaptation Sub-Committee of the second round of the Adaptation Reporting Power (ARP). The Adaptation Reporting Power was created as part of the Climate Change Act (2008). It allows the Secretary of State to ask key organisations to report on the steps they are taking to prepare for climate change.
This report presents the findings of a review of the evidence on policy support for heat supply or infrastructure transitions in different European countries, and sets out to understand how relevant these policy lessons might be to the UK context for achieving radical decarbonisation of heat.
Heating and hot water for UK buildings make up 40% of our energy consumption and 20% of our greenhouse gas emissions. It will be necessary to largely eliminate these emissions by around 2050 to meet the targets in the Climate Change Act and to maintain the UK contribution to international action under the Paris Agreement. This report considers that challenge and sets out possible steps to meet it.
This infographic provides a snapshot of the key options for low-carbon heating. It accompanies the Committee on Climate Change's 2016 report, 'Next steps for UK heat policy'.
In a set of new reports, the Committee recommends that the Government vigorously pursues the full package of measures the CCC has identified in order to meet existing UK climate commitments at least cost.
