UK to be carbon neutral by 2050?

Climate change

The UK have committed to becoming carbon neutral by 2050, this target to supersede the current measure of 80% by 2050 set in 2008 through the Climate Change Act.

Scotland has already committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions to net-zero by 2045, five years ahead of the UK government’s target with Wales targeting a reduction of 95% in the same time frame.

The initial predicted costs for carbon neutrality are in the region of £1 trillion and it is unclear if this money will come from consumers or from the private sector.

In addition to clean generation of fuels there is likely to be a substantial push towards greener energy consumption through new building regulations and the removal of petrol and diesel cars.
