In fulfilling this role our focus is to:

  • Provide independent advice to Government on setting and meeting carbon budgets and preparing for climate change.
  • Monitor progress in reducing emissions and achieving carbon budgets
  • Conduct independent analysis into climate change science, economics and policy
  • Engage with a wide range of organisations and individuals to share evidence and analysis
