UK becomes the first major country to halve carbon emissions

Claire Coutinho MP, secretary of state fr the Environment, commented:

"The UK is the first major economy to halve emissions. 

This is an enormous achievement by itself, but we have done so in a pragmatic way - growing our economy by 80% and protecting family finances at the same time."

It is also worth pointing out that three-quarters of that reduction has come since 2010.

Under the Conservatives, the UK has reduced emissions by 38%: two-thirds MORE than ANY other G20 country.
