Failure to deliver net zero plans

Current government programmes to decarbonise industries and support the UK hit its net zero aim by 2050 will be deemed as unsuccessfully executed.

The worrisome discoveries come from the analysis report uploaded today by the Climate Change Committee (CCC) which shows that there are massive losses in delivery schemes towards the country’s climate goals.

It stated, in a buoyant scenario, ongoing gov plans will deal with cutting another quarter of the UK’s emissions while more than a third of these plans cannot be depended on to deliver the cruical emissions cuts.

The UK’s independent adviser on dealing with climate change stated there are some “bright spots” of progress, but in most areas the likelihood of under-delivery is high.

Within landmark 600-page analysis, the CCC implies the UK still continues to have some of the broken homes in Europe and installations of insulation remain at rock bottom.

According to the analysis, the average yearly energy bill for households is about £40 higher than if insulation rates from pre-2012 had continued for the last decade.

A couple of day’s ago, it was reported that the government is in pursuit of £1 billion for a gigantic insulation scheme.

The CCC discovered that agriculture and land use also have the most frail policies in place.

“The UK is a champion in setting new climate goals, now we must be world-beaters in delivering them. In the midst of a cost of living crisis, the country is crying out to end its dependence on expensive fossil fuels, CCC Chairman Lord Deben stated.

“I welcome the government’s restated commitment to net zero, but holes must be plugged in its strategy urgently. The window to deliver real progress is short. We are eagle-eyed for the promised action.”

“We should all be proud that over the past three decades, the UK has driven down emissions faster than any other G7 country and that we have clear plans to go further, A government spokesperson stated.

“The UK is forging ahead of most other countries with around 40 percent of our power now coming from cleaner and cheaper renewables.

“This is backed up by £6bn of funding to make our homes and buildings more energy efficient, planting up to 30k hectares of new trees a year and more electric cars than ever before on our road – decarbonising our cars and vans faster than any other developed country.

“We are leading the world on climate change, helping over 90 percent of countries set net zero targets during our COP26 Presidency – up from 30 percent 2 years ago.

“The Glasgow Climate Pact has focused the eyes of the world on bolstering action, including getting 190 countries to agree to phasing out coal.”
