What is the UK Government doing to tackle climate change?

The government has a commitment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by the United Kingdom by 50% on 1990 levels by 2025 and to net zero by 2050.


At the minute, there is still a high demand for carbon based products in the UK which produces carbon dioxide. To reduce the demand on carbon, the UK are doing the following things:

- giving households a smart meter so that they can watch how much

  energy they are using;

- offer a scheme called the Feed-In Tariff which pays you money for

  20 years after your solar panels have been installed;

- and they are working towards making buses greener and promoting

  the use of public transport rather than using a car

- Sales of electric cars rose by 43% while overall car sales slumped

  by a fifth during 2020
