“We welcome the increased ambition shown by this new [emissions reduction] target - and the inclusion of aviation and shipping - which demonstrates the necessary leadership in the year that the UK hosts COP26. 

“The Government now needs to urgently focus on polices that can enable our industry to invest and help deliver on these pledges – by increasing still further the amount of low carbon generation, cutting emissions from housing and transport and by creating a modern, flexible energy system.”
