Section 2: Emissions targets for 2030 and 2040

This section imposes a duty on the Department to set targets for 2030 and 2040 which are consistent with the target in section 1.  It will be noted that section 3 already imposes a duty on Northern Ireland departments to ensure that the net Northern Ireland emissions account in 2040 is consistent with the 2050 target, and that section 4 already sets a target for the year 2030.  This section also needs to be read alongside section 6.
