star this property answer text <p>Climate change has long been of concern to the Commonwealth and the majority of member states continue to advocate for ambitious action on climate change today. Small and vulnerable states – which account for almost 60% of the Commonwealth – face an existential threat from climate change and associated natural disasters.</p><p> </p><p>This concern has been reflected in Commonwealth statements as early as the Langkawi Declaration on the Environment in 1989. Under UK chairmanship at the 2018 Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting, leaders reaffirmed their commitments under the Paris Agreement. We would expect the Commonwealth to play a major role in ensuring that a UK-hosted COP26 would be a success.</p><p> </p><p>The Government is now using its diplomatic network to support mitigation and adaptation across the Commonwealth. For example:</p><p> </p><ul><li>In Asia, Malaysia has confirmed its interest in partnering with the UK to develop an emissions calculator. The calculator is an open source energy and emissions tool developed by the UK to allow countries to explore and develop strategies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.</li></ul><p> </p><ul><li>In Africa, the UK has provided £500,000 to support the Commonwealth’s Climate Finance Access Hub based in Mauritius. The Hub will help small and vulnerable countries access international sources of finance to support adaptation and mitigation.</li></ul><p> </p><ul><li>In the Caribbean, the UK is helping four countries – Belize, Grenada, Jamaica, and St Lucia – to prepare detailed disaster risk profiles to aid efforts to increase their resilience to natural disaster. This work builds on existing support from the World Bank and is expected to be extended across the region over the next year.</li></ul><p> </p><ul><li>In the Pacific, the UK has pledged £1.2 million to support the establishment in Fiji of a Regional Nationally Determined Contribution Hub. The centre has been established in partnership with Australia, Germany and New Zealand, to help Pacific Island Countries implement national climate change policies and frameworks in response to the 2015 Paris Agreement.</li></ul>

star this property answer text <p>The Government is committed to ensuring fair remuneration for workers across the economy. In April 2019, the National Living Wage rate was increased to £8.21 per hour, a rise of 4.9 percent. Over 1.8 million workers benefitted directly from this increase.</p><p> </p><p>Employers in all industries are required by law to ensure that all workers due the National Minimum Wage or National Living Wage (NMW) receive it, including for overtime. We take tough action against the minority of employers who underpay the NMW. Since 2015, the Government has doubled HMRC’s enforcement and compliance to £27.4m for 2019/20</p><p> </p><p>Anyone who feels they are being underpaid the NMW should contact Acas (<a href="http://www.acas.org.uk" target="_blank">www.acas.org.uk</a>, 0300 123 1100) for free impartial advice or make a complaint directly to HMRC through their online form.</p><p> </p><p>Employers and employees are free to negotiate terms and conditions that go beyond the requirements set out in legislation. It is in employers’ interests to ensure that their reward packages are competitive, in order to retain and develop the staff who are fundamental to their success.</p>

When fully operational in 2021 it will be the largest carbon capture plant in the UK, removing 100 times more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere than the country’s current largest facility.</p><p>Our Clean Growth Grand Challenge Mission sets an ambition to establish at least one low-carbon industrial cluster by 2030, and the world’s first net-zero carbon industrial cluster by 2040. The Mission is technology neutral but is focussed on technologies that can be delivered cost-effectively through the use of shared networks, and CCUS is one of the key technologies that could help to deliver the mission.</p><p>Also supporting the mission, the Industrial Energy Transformation Fund is a £315m fund aimed at helping industry to transition to a low-carbon future. The fund will help companies cut their energy bills and carbon emissions through investing in energy efficiency and low-carbon technologies. This could include supporting technologies that are strategically important to long-term emissions reductions such as CCUS and Hydrogen.</p>
