Ruddock, Joan
Emissions from domestic aviation and shipping, and from cement manufacture in the UK, will be included in the Climate Change Bill's 2050 and 2020 targets. They are also included for the purposes of assessing progress towards the Government's goal to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 20 per cent. against a 1990 baseline by 2010. Emissions from international aviation and shipping are not included in either the Bill's targets, or the 2010 goal.
