3rd Progress Report from CCC

Leave a comment

In this 3rd Progress report we build on the techniques developed in the first two. It adjusts recorded emissions in 2010 for weather as well as macroeconomic impacts, showing that the underlying trend is one of broadly flat emissions. Analysis of the indicators meanwhile reveals mixed progress in implementing abatement measures. While emissions are continuing to run significantly below the first budget cap, an acceleration in the pace of emissions reduction will be needed if future carbon budgets are to be achieved. The report highlights some key policies to drive this acceleration, including the Electricity Market Reform and the Green Deal.
