Net Zero – UK & Global Progress

At the end of November 2023, the world will come together for the latest climate conference, COP28. The latest IPPC report notes that the planet has already warmed to 1.1 degrees above preindustrial levels, and it is likely warming will exceed 1.5 degrees this century, with current national plans not enough to meet climate goals. Meanwhile in the UK, the Climate Change Committee’s report of June 2023 suggests that the rate of emissions reduction in the UK is too slow, making hitting our own emissions targets very difficult.
