Energy UK responds to Defra's draft Clean Air Strategy
Responding to Defra's Clean Air Strategy draft publication, Lawrence Slade, Chief Executive of Energy UK said:
“The energy sector has made huge progress in tackling air pollution by reducing harmful emissions. Low carbon generation also reached record levels, making 2017 the greenest year yet.
“We welcome the launch of the Clean Air Strategy by the Government today as, for the first time, it encompasses all sectors of the economy. We look forward to working with Government to improve air quality and go further and faster to reduce greenhouse gas emissions as we deliver a clean, green future energy system that meets consumers’ expectations.”
