Answer for Annual CO2 Reduction Targets

Answered By: 
The Mayor

My Climate Change Action Plan set an overall carbon reduction target of 60% by 2025. As I set out when launching the Plan, this implies a reduction of 4% a year. Clearly we will not achieve emissions reductions in a totally linear fashion, but we will aim to reach this leve of cuts each year. I have also undertaken to report annually on progress with the Plan, and will include within this information about CO2 emissions as well as details of implementation programmes.
