Some of Wales’ biggest emitters of greenhouse gases will be urged to join together to help tackle climate change. More than 300 businesses, public sector bodies and community leaders are meeting at a conference in Cardiff later. Extinction Rebellion campaigners have also been invited by the Welsh Government to share their ideas. Environment minister Lesley Griffiths said she hoped for a “collective response” to cut emissions. Wales is set to put a new target into law next year for a 95% reduction in greenhouse gases from 1990 levels by 2050. It follows advice by experts at the Committee on Climate Change, who said it would be an appropriate contribution to the UK hitting a so-called net zero target by the same year.
