UK Climate Target to Reduce Greenhouse Gas by 68%

The UK make official plans to reduce the production of greenhouse gases by 68% compared to results in 1990 by 2030. This is part of the plan to set the UK on a net zero and to be a leading country in reducing climate change by 2050.

By setting the net zero emissions by 2050 target the UK has become the first country, with a major economy, to legislate for this, leading the way for more countries to follow. As per the Paris Climate Agreement, the UK has among the highest Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) meaning we are being more green, clean and, sustainable as a country than most other 196 member who have signed the agreement.

This target goes hand in hand with the ‘Ten Point Plan for a Green Industrial Revolution’ as we make huge investment into the development and construction of technologies to cut emissions in all departments.

The Prime Minister, Boris Johnson has urged other countries to follow in the steps of the UK and has said:

“But this is a global effort, which is why the UK is urging world leaders as part of next week’s Climate Ambition Summit to bring forward their own ambitious plans to cut emissions and set net zero targets.”

This is exciting news for the energy industry as over the next couple of years we will see more and more new technologies appear that introduce new ways of cutting emissions and support a whole new infrastructure for the UK economy.
