Reducing Emissions in Northern Ireland


In this report, the Committee sets out how Northern Ireland can reduce its greenhouse gas emissions between now and 2030 in order to meet UK-wide climate change targets.
The report’s key findings are:

  • Existing policies are not enough to deliver this reduction
  • There are excellent opportunities to close this gap and go beyond 35%
  • Meeting the cost-effective path to decarbonisation in Northern Ireland will require action across all sectors of the economy and a more joined-up approach
Overall, Northern Ireland’s fair contribution to the UK’s fifth carbon budget requires emissions reductions of at least 35% against 1990 levels by 2030.
