We should be proud of how we lead the world in tackling climate change – cutting emissions by over a third while growing the economy by two thirds since 1990.

We over-achieved the first carbon budget and are making good progress to meet the second and third.

We are looking to say more in The Clean Growth Strategy which will set out our future plans, building on the impressive progress to date.
