The UK Low Carbon Transition Plan


The UK Low Carbon Transition Plan plots how the UK will meet its targets on emissions reduction. Original (archived May 2010) - targetting 34% cut in emissions on 1990 levels by 2020, set out in the 2009 budgetThis publication was published under the 2010 to 2015 Conservative and Liberal Democrat coalition government

First published in December 2011, the Carbon Plan sets out the governments plans for achieving the emissions reductions it committed to in the first 4 carbon budgets.
Emissions in the UK must, by law, be cut by at least 80% of 1990 levels by 2050. The UK was first to set its ambition in law and the Plan sets out progress to date and assesses cost-effective next steps.
Parts 1, 2 and 3 of the report, and Annex A and Annex B set out the governments strategy and fulfil the legal obligation to report on what the UK is doing to ensure it meets carbon budgets set in law.
Annex C sets out, department by department, actions and deadlines for the next 5 years.
