Mapping the path to net zero


This committee workstream, comprising a series of related evidence sessions, is focused on the strategies for delivery of the Government’s net zero strategy. The announcement follows the Climate Change Committee’s warning that time is running out for realistic climate commitments. 

In line with its remit "to consider to what extent the policies and programmes of government departments and non­departmental public bodies contribute to environmental protection and sustainable development" and to audit their performance against targets  by Ministers, the Committee plans to examine whether the Government’s present strategies to meet its net zero targets are adequate to meet its policy ambitions.The Committee will collaborate closely with the Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy Committee in that Committee's own inquiry into Net Zero Governance, announced on 24 June 2021. The Committee also intends to work collaboratively with other departmental select committees monitoring carbon-intensive departments and their net zero strategies.

This inquiry is no longer accepting evidence

The deadline for submissions was Thursday 26 August 2021.
