More action is needed on the low carbon agenda

4th July 2012

Responding to the Committee on Climate Change's 2012 Progress Report, Aldersgate Group Chairman, Peter Young, said that more action is needed on the low carbon agenda.

"With low carbon policies estimated at delivering only a quarter of that required to meet future carbon budgets, the days of discussing options for a step change in growing the UK low carbon economy are over. Implementation must start now with the focus on action and delivery.

Our emergence from austerity risks bringing us slow brown growth not the fast green growth that would deliver future carbon budgets."
