The latest progress report on reducing emissions from the Committee on Climate Change finds that the UK has lost leadership in climate action and almost all targets are being missed.

Particular areas of criticism include insultation of homes, transport emissions, no coherent programme for behaviour change, and still no decision on hydrogen for home heating.

Chris Stark, chief executive of the CCC, said: “What’s missing is the kind of political leadership. You’ve got a series of strings being pushed across government and no one at the top pulling it up to raise it to the political priority that is required. Until that happens, this programme [of reaching net zero] is going to run into the sand.”
