Climate action has never been higher on the agenda of governments across the world. Despite criticism of the recent COP26, there was a new sense of urgency and determination among global leaders as they sought to cut emissions and limit global warming to 1.5C.
Here at home, Climate Action Plan 2021 sets out a pathway towards achieving a 51% reduction in carbon emissions by 2030. The Plan, which will be updated annually, specifies ranges of emissions reduction for each sector of the economy and the actions needed to deliver them. The level of change required is profound and all policy levers, including tax, will need to be deployed to achieve it.
The transition will challenge individual citizens and businesses. But there are opportunities for our economy on the journey to decarbonisation.
