Climate Change: EU Action

Question for Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy

UK government’s action to tackle climate change is framed by the Climate Change Act. This is domestic legislation and is therefore unaffected by exiting the EU.

The UK is committed to international cooperation, including with the EU, on issues of shared interest including climate change.
