The Church of England’s lead bishop on the environment has welcomed the news that the government has set a stricter target on climate change. The Right Reverend Nicholas Holtam, Bishop of Salisbury said: “This announcement is very welcome, and the UK is setting an example by making this commitment to address the global climate emergency.”
“But commitment alone is meaningless unless it is backed up by relentless action, which must remain our priority in the coming decades.
“If we are to achieve Net Zero the government’s response to the recent recommendations from the Climate Change Committee will be crucial.”
