In October 2018 the Committee on Climate Change (CCC) launched a call for evidence on the UK and Devolved Administrations’ long-term targets for greenhouse gas emissions and the UK’s transition to a net zero-carbon economy.
CREDS provided a coordinated response that addressed issues including: delivering net-zero emissions by taking account of emissions embodied in UK consumption, using demand-side changes to tackle hard-to-decarbonise sectors, the opportunities for low-carbon innovation, enabling lower-carbon lifestyles by supporting behaviour change, developing ambitious and flexible policy structures, and further action in the Devolved Administrations.
