As the UK’s Climate Change Committee publishes its latest recommendations for UK government action to drastically reduce carbon emissions, Ban Ki-moon, former UN Secretary General and Deputy Chair of The Elders said:

“The Elders welcome the recommendations of the UK’s Climate Change Committee. Committing the UK to become carbon neutral by 2050 will send a clear message to other G20 nations and beyond that the UK truly is a leader on climate action. Such a decision, should the UK Government take it, will be unprecedented and will put pressure on other nations to do the same. The scale and urgency of the climate challenge we face needs this kind of ambitious leadership – it would mark a significant political moment in efforts to keep global temperatures in line with a 1.5C rise.”
