Climate committee advises on Covid-19

01 May 2020
 

The Committee on Climate Change is to advise the Government on how the economy can recover from the Covid-19 pandemic in a way that supports efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The Committee will write to ministers in the coming weeks to set out initial advice on ensuring that rebuilding efforts support a “just transition” towards net zero greenhouse gas emissions and strengthen the UK’s preparedness for climate change. Meanwhile, the Committee’s advice on the sixth carbon budget (2033-2037) will be delayed from September until December to give the Committee more time to reflect on the impact of the virus. “Responding to the pandemic is, rightly, the immediate priority for everyone,” said CCC chief executive Chris Stark. “Eventually, thoughts will turn to the need to rebuild after coronavirus – the climate priorities can help shape these efforts. The Committee will offer advice to Government on constructing a resilient recovery. Coronavirus is teaching us all the value of prudent planning for global shocks.”
