10 years of the Climate Change Act

Posted on 26 November 2018

It has been ten years since the Climate Change Act was passed and Energy UK is marking the occasion by publishing a ten-point action plan setting out how the UK can continue as a world leader in tackling climate change.

Our CEO, David Bird has contributed to a publication of essays called ‘Energy and our Environment’ (he’s on page 25 if you want to take a look). This publication examines the opinions of politicians and energy sector figures on the Climate Change Act, what it has done for us in the last 10 years and where it could go in the future. It’s a very interesting read.

Energy UK have also produced a short film to go alongside the report, asking a group of 10 year olds what they think about climate change and why it matters to them. Why not take a look and let us know what you think about the Climate Change Act?
