Hurd: emissions plan due Q1
Carbon reduction strategy to be published by end-March
The UK will publish its long-awaited Emissions Reduction Plan by the end of March, climate change minister Nick Hurd has said.
Addressing the BEIS select committee, Hurd said the plan would be delivered “by the end of the quarter.”
Hurd said the plan, which will state how the UK will meet its legally-binding carbon targets, will set out a "direction of travel" that will tie in with BEIS Secretary Greg Clark’s forthcoming Industrial Strategy.
Hurd said the plan would take into account Brexit and whether the UK is bound into European negotiations of the Paris Agreement for climate change for 2030.
