This is the Committee on Climate Change’s first report, under sections 36 and 59 of the Climate Change Act, covering both progress towards meeting carbon budgets and progress on adaptation to climate change.
The report is set out in three parts:
- This joint summary providing a high-level assessment of progress to reduce emissions and prepare for the impact of climate change, including recommended actions.
- A more detailed report on the progress to-date towards meeting carbon budgets and the UK’s statutory target to reduce emissions in 2050 by at least 80% from 1990 levels.
- A more detailed report on the progress being made to prepare for and adapt to the impacts of climate change.
