Climate Change Bill

Climate Change Act 2008

The UK has passed legislation which introduces the world’s first long term legally binding framework to tackle the dangers of climate change. The country is now committed to reduce the emission of greenhouse gases with 80% by they year 2050. This includes the British share of international air and sea travel.

This means for Bath, and any other city in the country, that whether we like it or not, it is now not only a necessity but also law, to make the transition to a future that consumes less oil and emits less CO2.

The Climate Change Bill was introduced into Parliament on 14 November 2007 and became law on 26th November 2008. Copies of the Climate Change Act 2008 can be obtained via the website of the Office of Public Sector Information. For further information see:
