Energy UK comments on provisional UK greenhouse gas emissions national statistics
Commenting on the provisional UK greenhouse gas emissions for 2018 statistics published by BEIS today, Energy UK’s chief executive, Lawrence Slade said:
"These figures show how the energy sector has led the way in reducing emissions and underline the progress the UK has made in recent years.
"But we must go further and faster if we are to meet our climate change goals – including driving greater progress in the transport and heating sectors. We must also increase the energy efficiency of our homes and businesses, which has made a huge contribution in the reductions to date and should be given top priority by the government."
