Gov’t publishes Net Zero Strategy

The Government has published its new Net Zero Strategy.

Following the Heat and Building Strategy announced this week, the document aims to tie together the large number of targets, strategies and grants that the Government has announced ahead of the UK hosting COP26 in November to spell out how exactly the UK will meet their net zero target by 2050.

The Strategy sets out policies to meet the 4th and 5th Carbon Budgets, the UK’s Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) and a decarbonised economy by 2050.

The Strategy follows 4 key principles:

1. Prioritise consumer choice.

2. Ensure biggest polluters pay the most for the transition through carbon pricing.

3. Ensure the most vulnerable are protected through Government support: energy bill discounts, energy efficiency upgrades etc.

4. Work with businesses to deliver deep cost reductions in low carbon technology.
