UK Commits to ‘Net Zero’ Emissions by 2050

Boiler Awards 2018 By Boiler Guide

Theresa May has announced a new legislation that would see the UK achieve 'net zero' emissions by 2050.

The ambitious new legislation follows news that gas boilers will be banned in all new homes from 2025 and could see them removed altogether.

Current aims of cutting emissions by 80% (compared to 1990 levels) by 2050 will now be replaced with the new legislation.

In 5 years time the legislation will be reviewed to ensure that other countries are doing their part too.

At this moment it's unclear how the UK will achieve the target but the news has been met positively by environmental organisations and members of the heating industry.

Calls are now being made for clear strategies to be laid out to help the heating industry meet the strict emissions target.

Speaking about the legislation, Theresa May said: "As the first country to legislate for long-term climate targets, we can be truly proud of our record in tackling climate change. We have made huge progress in growing our economy and the jobs market while slashing emissions.

"Now is the time to go further and faster to safeguard the environment for our children. This country led the world in innovation during the Industrial Revolution, and now we must lead the world to a cleaner, greener form of growth."
