The Aldersgate Group supports the report by the Committee on Climate Change, on meeting carbon budgets and ensuring a low carbon recovery, launched today.
Commenting on the report, Peter Young, Chairman of the Aldersgate Group, said: "We welcome the Committee's headline message that greater urgency is needed to meet carbon budgets. A number of the priorities identified by the Committee are also commitments in the Coalition Agreement, such as electricity market reform and the implementation of a carbon floor price. Prompt action will not only reduce greenhouse gas emissions but will be vital for the economic recovery, boosting growth, jobs and competitiveness.
