A collection of 100 policies and proposals aimed at tackling climate change has been published. The Welsh Government plans will see coordinated efforts in areas including power generation, transport, waste processing, housing and agriculture. They also aim to enforce a legally-binding target to cut Welsh emissions by 80% by 2050. However, the vast majority of pledges already exist in different government departments. Previously unannounced pledges include a review of skill gaps for jobs supporting decarbonisation, and the setting up of an expert group to advise on new technologies. The plans also include increasing tree planting rates, ensuring all public buildings are supplied with renewable electricity by 2020, and making all buses and taxis zero-emission by 2028.
