UK Legal Limits for CO2 Emissions:

In March 2007, the Labour government announced plans to introduce legally binding limits (budgets) on carbon emissions for all the UK, that will be set at five-year intervals.

The new green law will:

  • Place a duty on ministers to report every year on the progress being made and the action being taken to ensure the UK stays on track.
  • Set up a new independent body monitoring emissions that will have powers to inform parliament and recommend action.
  • BUT NOT Introduce Personal Carbon Budgets
