Building a low carbon economy : implementing the Climate Change Act 2008. /

by HM Treasury.

Publisher: London, U.K. HM Treasury 2009Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: The Climate Change Act 2008 creates a new approach to managing and responding to climate change in the UK. At the heart of the Act is a legally binding target to reduce the UK’s greenhouse gas emissions to at least 80 per cent below 1990 levels by 2050, to be achieved through action at home and abroad. To drive progress towards this target, the Act introduces five year “carbon budgets”, which define the emissions pathway to the 2050 target by limiting the total greenhouse gas emissions allowed in each five year period, beginning in 2008. ; The first three carbon budgets - for 2008-12, 2013-17, and 2018-22 - must be set by 1 June. In setting them, the Government must take into account the advice of the independent Committee on Climate Change (CCC) established under the Act to advise the Government on setting carbon budgets and to report to Parliament on the progress made in reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The CCC published its first report on 1 December 2008. Budget 2009 and this document provide the Government’s high-level response to that advice.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Industrial pollution and other headline dangers have been successfully tackled in places. At the 'Earth Summit' in Rio in 1992, the international community affirmed that current patterns of economic and social development are not sustainable. Since then there have been many constructive responses in government, business and the civil society to meet the challenges that lie ahead. Decisions have to deal with conflicting opinions about environmental problems, the risks they pose to different groups in society, and the need to build trust and engage citizens in solutions.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
