The UK is seriously off track to reaching net zero by 2050.
That's the suggestion from Dustin Benton, Policy Director at Green Alliance, who spoke to future Net Zero at the organisation's ‘Countdown to COP’ event in London earlier this month.
He said the country is around 20% above where it needs to be by 2030 in emissions terms - he noted it is not only possible to bring this down and get the UK back on track this year but stressed it is absolutely vital to do so considering the UK is hosting COP26 and needs to set a strong example of global leadership.
