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.
Quarterly updates on the implementation of the Carbon Plan are available at
