Climate Change Act (Northern Ireland) 2022

Section 43: Progress report during budgetary period

This section places a duty on the Committee on Climate Change to send a report to the Department, before the end of 2027, on its view on the progress that has been made towards meeting the targets in the Act and the carbon budgets set under section 23. The report is to indicate whether the targets and carbon budgets are likely to be met and identify further action required to meet these targets. This will be the first significant assessment of progress made towards the targets set out under the Act by the Committee on Climate Change. The subsequent sections in Part 4 place further requirements on the Committee on Climate Change concerning the assessment of progress against targets and carbon budgets and progress with the implementation of policies and proposals to meet carbon budgets.

Subsection (2) places a duty on the Department to lay the report in the Northern Ireland Assembly. A similar requirement is set out in respect of other reports provided by the Committee on Climate Change under Part 4 of the Act.
