CCC Report on Local Authorities and Climate Change
Following discussion in Parliament regarding whether it would be appropriate to set local carbon budgets the Committee on Climate Change were requested by Greg Barker to provide advice on the role of local authorities in delivering emissions reductions.
The Committee made their report public on Thursday 17th May recommending that a statutory duty and/or additional funding is introduced to ensure local authorities have stronger incentives to act.
