Jonathan Oates - Decarbonising Wales
In 2016, the Environment Wales Act placed a duty on Welsh Ministers to decarbonise the Welsh economy by 2050. This included a requirement to set a series of interim targets and carbon budgets, with five yearly plans setting the policies to achieve the required pathway. Welsh Government will, in March 2019, publish its first action plan. The presentation will explore the progress made to date and set out both the challenges and opportunities for Wales in transitioning to a low carbon economy and the implications for infrastructure, including the built environment.
