Reducing Welsh emissions
The Environment (Wales) Act 2016 sets out the approach to help Wales reduce its carbon emissions.
The Environment (Wales) Act places a duty on the Welsh Ministers to ensure that in 2050 net emissions are at least 80% lower than the baseline set in legislation. This will be achieved through the setting of interim targets for 2020, 2030 and 2040 and 5 yearly carbon budgets up until to 2050.
There is a duty on Welsh Ministers to prepare and publish a set of policies and proposals for the budgetary period. Welsh Ministers are also required to publish a statement of progress after each budgetary period. The UKCCC will provide advice on the latest scientific evidence and report progress made against budget targets.
A Programme has been established to implement the requirements of the Act. The Programme focuses on setting up the emission reduction framework including:
- Stage 1 - Determining what we are including in our emission accounting framework
- Stage 2 - Setting the level of interim targets and first two carbon budgets
- Stage 3 - Setting out a delivery plan on how we are going to achieve the targets
As part of their advisory role, the UKCCC is conducting a call for evidence (external link), which is an open consultation seeking views from stakeholders on Wales’ approach to accounting emissions (Stage 1).
Further information on any further consultations in the development of the regulations will be provided here.
