The Clean Growth Strategy made clear that the Government believes the UK will need to legislate for a net zero emissions target at an appropriate point in the future, to provide legal certainty on where the UK is heading.

We will seek the Committee on Climate Change’s (CCC) advice on the implications of Paris Agreement for the UK’s long-term targets, after the release of the IPCC Special Report later this year.
