Dear Journalists,
Please challenge ministers when they brag that UK has cut emissions by nearly 50 per cent. That’s only part of the story and highly misleading – because we’ve offshored so much manufacturing.

The UK has in fact barely cut emissions at all outside of the power sector since 2010. An abject failure.

What’s more, our emissions figures have loads of omissions (like other nations). Politicians like Sunak are not telling the truth.

Zero Hour’s Ambition Gap report is a concise guide explaining in lay terms why the UK’s Net Zero Strategy isn’t fit for purpose. It would be great if journalists could read it.
