unstar this property answer text <p>The Government fully recognises the urgency of acting on climate change.</p><p> </p><p>I am pleased to confirm that on 12th June, the Government laid draft legislation to set a new net zero greenhouse gas emissions target for the UK, to be delivered by 2050. This world-leading target will bring to an end our contribution to climate change. We already have a strong foundation of action and leadership to build from, having cut our emissions by 42% since 1990 while growing the economy by 72%. And we are providing at least £5.8bn of international climate finance between 2016 and 2020 to help developing countries mitigate and adapt to the impacts of climate change, reduce deforestation and pursue clean economic growth.</p> more like this
