Efra Committee on the Climate Change Bill
- The Bill should avoid referring to ‘carbon.’ It should use ‘carbon dioxide’ or carbon dioxide equivalent.’
- The Bill should incorporate targets referring to cumulative emissions.
- The Committee on Climate Change should assess what the 2050 target should be and be empowered by the Bill to propose revising the target.
- The Committee should not be a policy-making or delivery body. It should be an advisory body and should include expertise about the impact of climate change on biodiversity.
- The Committee should be independent of Government and have sufficient resources to carry out its functions.
