Louise’s contract with the Climate Change Committee has now finished, and her report Local Authorities and the Sixth Carbon Budget was published alongside the Sixth Carbon Budget in December 2020. This shows that the UK Government and local authorities share a common goal to deliver Net Zero. But that it can only be achieved if Government, regional agencies and local authorities work seamlessly together. It outlines how national and local action link up, what is happening now and provides key actions and recommendations for local and national government.
In February, Louise joined CCC Member Professor Piers Forster, Dr David Joffe, CCC’s Head of Carbon Budgets, Bristol Mayor Marvin Rees and West Berkshire Council’s Sue Halliwell to discuss the role of local action. You can catch the event here on YouTube.
