Climate Change Committee ('CCC') Publishes Progress Report to Parliament


On June 25th, the Climate Change Committee ('CCC'), the Government's own climate advisers, published their Progress Report to Parliament. This year’s report provides advice to the UK Government on securing a green and resilient recovery to COVID-19.
The Committee asks the government to redouble its efforts and expands on its May 2020 advice to the UK Prime Minister in which it set out the principles for building a resilient recovery. 

  • It urges the Government to focus over the next 12 months on:
  • Low-carbon retrofits and buildings that are fit for the future
  • Tree planting, peatland restoration, and green infrastructure
  • Energy networks must be strengthened
  • Infrastructure to make it easy for people to walk, cycle, and work remotely
  • Moving towards a circular economy.
