Consultation launched into NI’s carbon emission aims


The Department for Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs (DAERA) on behalf of the Northern Ireland Executive have published a consultation on Northern Ireland’s 2030 & 2040 Emissions Reduction Targets.

The main aim of the consultation is to consult on the proposed 2030 and 2040 emissions targets for Northern Ireland and proposed carbon budgets for the periods 2023-2027, 2028-2032 and 2033-2037. This is also being used as an opportunity to seek the public’s views on the Climate Change Committee’s (CCC) Advice Report: The Path to a Net Zero Northern Ireland published in March 2023.

You can respond to this consultation through an online survey. A series of consultation sessions are planned to include sector specific workshops and a number of public consultation sessions.
