Carbon Appeal over Planes and Ships

Green champion WWF Cymru has welcomed recommendations to include aviation and shipping in the UK Climate Change Act.

Emissions from international aviation and shipping were initially left out of carbon "budgets," which aim to reduce the UK's greenhouse gas emissions. The Committee on Climate Change said they should no longer be excluded, but added that this would not mean new aviation and shipping costs.

WWF's head of climate change Keith Allott said: "Including aviation and shipping emissions in carbon budgets is an essential step in managing fast-growing greenhouse gas emissions from these sectors.

"The Government should accept these recommendations as soon as possible."
