“The Government’s commitment is a vital step in bringing the UK closer to its fair share of global action needed to tackle the climate crisis. Lives and livelihoods are already being lost due to climate change, particularly in poorer countries that have done least to cause it. To get off the catastrophic emissions path we are currently on demands bolder action and for the UK to reduce our emissions even further. The Government as hosts of next year’s UN climate summit now needs to galvanise other nations to announce more ambitious reduction targets."
