Committee on Climate Change

As an independent body set up to advise the UK government on carbon budgets, the Committee on Climate Change (CCC) is responsible for advising Government on setting climate change targets and reducing emissions to meet these. The CCC takes this responsibility just as seriously when looking at its own practices.  Action is being taken to manage down carbon emissions in all aspects of the Committee’s business, from travel to waste to procurement, and the Committee has offset all unavoidable emissions using Carbon Retirement, which means they can be 100% certain that the reductions they are paying for will happen, and happen here in Europe.

David Kennedy, Chief Executive of the CCC, said, “Adopting sustainable business practices and reducing our carbon emissions is central to the way we work.  Key components of our sustainability strategy are accurately monitoring, reducing and offsetting our carbon emissions to ensure we comply with the Government's definition of carbon neutrality.  Our main priority is to reduce our business emissions as much as we possibly can, but as well as this, we were keen to offset our unavoidable emissions.”
