The changes required to tackle climate change will bring welcome knock-on effects that improve quality of life, says Alex Sobel MP.
In June 2019, the UK Parliament passed legislation requiring the government to reduce net emissions of greenhouse gases by 100 per cent by 2050. This ground-breaking legislation saw the UK become the first major economy to commit to a ‘net zero’ target. The 2050 commitment was the outcome of a cross-party parliamentary initiative to lead the global effort to keep temperature rise below 1.5 degrees on pre-industrial levels.
Following the passage of the 2050 target, the Net Zero All Party Parliamentary Group (NZ APPG) was created with the mission to embed net zero solutions and promote Government action to meet the new legally binding obligation. The APPG brings together Parliamentarians, academics and business to work together to create a net zero pathway.
