In June 2019, the UK passed laws to end its contribution to global warming by 2050. The target requires the UK to bring all greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2050. This target was recommended by the Committee on Climate Change, the UK’s independent climate advisory body and means that any emissions will need to be balanced by schemes to offset an equivalent amount of greenhouse gases from the atmosphere.
