Local government and the path to net zero


The aim of the inquiry is to scrutinise the government’s plans to make all new homes “zero carbon ready” by 2025, through the introduction of the Future Homes Standards, and to explore how local government can help the UK to reduce its carbon emissions to “net zero” by 2050, including by incentivising and decarbonising public transport and facilitating green growth. The inquiry follows on from the findings of the Climate Assembly UK report in 2020.
