Zero carbon economy: consultation response

Consultation response   Materials & ProductsDecarbonisation of heat

The CREDS Team

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.

Summary of our response

CREDS provided a co-ordinated 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
  • Further action in the Devolved Administrations.
