Christian Aid responds to UK net zero target becoming law


Responding to the UK’s net zero climate target becoming law, Daisy-Rose Srblin, Christian Aid’s UK Advocacy Adviser said:
 
“The Government passing a UK net zero emissions target puts the UK in the front group of countries upping their response to the latest scientific warnings about climate breakdown.
 
“While we think the UK can achieve this goal before 2050, the most important thing will be the government bringing forward concrete plans for rapid and radical decarbonisation of the economy. Setting the target is easy, the question is what will the Government now be doing to meet it?”
 
“As a humanitarian charity, we see firsthand the climate impacts that are devastating many of the poorest and most vulnerable communities around the world. These climate impacts are occurring more frequently and with greater strength: if we and others reduce emissions in line with the science, these people have the chance to adapt, develop and thrive.”
