star this property answer text <p>The UK was the first country to introduce long-term, legally binding emission reduction targets through the Climate Change Act 2008, which set a 2050 target to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by at least 80% relative to 1990 levels. The Act also introduced carbon budgets which cap emissions over successive 5-year periods and must be set 12 years in advance.</p><p> </p><p>The UK carbon budgets already set in legislation are among the most stringent in the world. The level of each Carbon Budget is set out in the table below. Carbon budgets cover a range of greenhouse gas emissions including carbon dioxide, measured in million tonnes carbon dioxide equivalent (MtCO2e).</p><table><tbody><tr><td rowspan="2"><p> </p></td><td><p><strong>Carbon Budget 1</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Carbon Budget 2</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Carbon Budget 3</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Carbon Budget 4</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Carbon Budget 5</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p><strong>2008-12</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>2013-17</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>2018-22</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>2023-27</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>2028-32</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p><strong>Budget Level</strong> <strong>(MtCO2e)</strong></p></td><td><p>3,018</p></td><td><p>2,782</p></td><td><p>2,544</p></td><td><p>1,950</p></td><td><p>1,725</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Following the publication of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s special report on the impact of global warming of 1.5°C in October 2018, the Government commissioned its independent experts, the Committee on Climate Change (CCC), to provide their advice on the implications of the Paris Agreement for the UK’s long-term emissions reduction targets, including on setting a net-zero target. The CCC’s advice is due on 2 May and we will consider it carefully when it is received.</p>

CCUS can add value to the economy and help tackle hard to decarbonise sectors.</p><p> </p><p>Our CCUS Action Plan is designed to progress CCUS in the UK, including enabling the UK’s first CCUS facility to be operational from the mid-2020s. CCUS is also likely to play an important role in achieving our Industrial Clusters Mission, creating the world’s first net-zero industrial cluster by 2040.</p><p> </p><p>In progressing CCUS, the UK has already established a robust regulatory framework for CCUS, with regulations applying to licensing, environmental inspection and CO<sub>2</sub> storage, operation and monitoring activities. This means that any CCUS project will need to comply with a rigorous health and safety assessment and require permits and approval from relevant environment agencies, the Health and Safety Executive and the Oil and Gas Authority.</p>
