Alok Sharma: Net zero targets can be met with incentives
With the UN Climate Change Conference in Glasgow looming ever closer, Andrew Marr spoke this morning to Alok Sharma, the President for COP26. Marr asked about what the UK government was preparing to do in order to meet its ambitious targets of zero carbon emissions by 2050:
How will the UK meet net zero emissions commitments by 2050? "We will address what we need to do across a whole range of sectors," says COP26 President Alok Sharma, "on a 30 year view, we have managed to cut emissions by over 40%" https://t.co/bL9JMgAZUF #Marr pic.twitter.com/iwz8SHYfMJ— BBC Politics (@BBCPolitics) September 19, 2021
AS: The UK actually has been making progress… This isn’t about forcing anyone to do anything, this is about providing incentives.
