As we start a new decade and the UK using an estimated 685 million tons of carbon dioxide emissions every year. It’s clear we need to take action to help mitigate the current climate emergency the UK is having.
That’s why in 2019 the UK government committed to the Net Zero target to hit by the year 2050 which as a whole will reduce the amount of emissions generated from energy across the board.
This is apart of the 2008 Climate change act and commits the UK government to cut greenhouse gas emissions 100% by the year 2050. It was originally meant to cut our overall emissions by at least 80% by the year 2050 however it was agreed in 2019 that the target would be set to reduce carbon emissions in the UK by 100% to achieve Net Zero emissions.
