PM welcomes decarbonisation programme

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has reiterated his commitment to decarbonisation and broadly welcomed proposals for a sweeping national net zero decarbonisation programme.

The proposals, laid out in a report by the Council for Science and Technology, include “a disciplined and rigorous whole systems approach to deliver a better transition towards the net-zero emissions target”.

The report warns that achieving net zero emissions “will require fundamental changes in our society and economy" and argues that the Government should step up decarbonisation efforts now and "not rely on the invention of new, breakthrough technologies to achieve net zero by 2050, though many will arise and prove their worth.”
