The UK has become the first major economy in the world to pass a law to bring greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2050.
That means emissions would be balanced by schemes to offset an equivalent amount of greenhouse gases from the atmosphere, such as planting trees or using technology like carbon capture and storage (CCS).
It changes the 2008 Climate Change Act, which had set a goal to reduce emissions by 80% by 2050.
