Government adopt targets to slash greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 – proof that Brexit will not affect UK drive on Climate Change.

Jun 30, 2016 By ACI Reports | Category: EPBD

The Government will on 30th June 2016 adopt targets to slash Greenhouse Gas emissions by 2030 as it seeks to show its commitment to tackling climate change. TM44 Air Conditioning Inspections are a fundamental part of the management of the use of Greenhouse Gasses and their treatment on disposal,

Ministers will lay Regulations in Parliament for the "fifth carbon budget", which governs the reductions in greenhouse gases for the period 2028 to 2032, and will accept recommendations from advisers for a 57% cut by 2030.

The move comes amid concerns that Brexit could undermine the UK's position as a leader on climate action, fears which Energy Secretary Amber Rudd has moved to quell in a speech to business and climate leaders. The UK remains the leading European Country in terms of its carbon reduction goals and Brexit will not change that strategy. ACI Reports are delighted to see these commitments and the continuing Law on TM44 Inspections. There is an expectation that DECC will get tough with non-compliant Companies as it strives to achieve the new targets.

The Government's advisory Committee on Climate Change (CCC) last year recommended setting a fifth carbon budget at levels that would see a 57% reduction in greenhouse gases on 1990 levels by 2030. The cuts would mean the UK stays on track to meet its legally-binding target to reduce emissions by 80% on 1990 levels by mid-century, the Committee on Climate Change stated. The Government is also committed to the Energy Act being introduced in 2018, causing an increased number of EPC instructions to ACI Reports.

Emissions are already down by well over a third on 1990 levels, but data from the Department of Energy and Climate Change have suggested the UK is not on track to meet the 52% cut put in law for the fourth carbon budget from 2023-2027. This will lead to a much tougher approach in years to come, although TM44 reports have been in place since 2008 and many companies are on their renewal cycles with ACI Reports seeing a 50% + increase on instructions in 2016. ACI have also seen a surge in TM44 and EPC instructions since Brexit as Companies also realise that the Energy Act 2018 is just around the corner.

Detailed government guidance is anticipated in the coming months, and a number of issues including the regulation’s application to buildings with multiple occupiers, listed or historic buildings require clarification.

Until then, owners of qualifying properties should take stock of the new regime and seek early advice in advance of any anticipated sale or lease. Early action such as having EPCs done now in order to establish where the commercial property owner stands would be a sensible approach, together with budgeting. ACI Reports undertake EPCs in Scotland in addition to our main throughput of Scottish TM44 Air Conditioning Reports..
