Stark reminder of gap between rhetoric and reality on achieving net zero emissions – Ed Miliband

Ed Miliband MP, Labour’s Shadow Business Secretary, commenting on the Climate Change Committee’s annual report to parliament published today, said:

“This report serves as a stark reminder of the gap between rhetoric and reality when it comes to the Government’s progress on achieving the net-zero emissions target enshrined in law a year ago. All the evidence demonstrating the need for far greater urgency is set out within this report.

“Now is the moment for government to step up and bring forward the most ambitious green recovery programme in the world to address the jobs crisis facing so many people, improve our quality of life and fulfil the UK’s leadership role as COP26 President.”
