Draft Climate Change Bill moves to next stage - Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs (DAERA)

Science-led, evidence-based and stakeholder-driven policy, is the only way we will achieve realistic, sustainable and achievable reductions in carbon emissions and play our part in mitigating climate change – Edwin Poots has said.

The Minister made the comments as he welcomed the passage of his draft Climate Change Bill through the Executive today (24 June).

The Minister said: “I am pleased that my draft Climate Change Bill has been agreed by my Executive colleagues. I now intend to move it swiftly to the next stage as my ultimate aim is to see my Bill complete its legislative passage within the current Assembly mandate. We need a Climate Change Bill and targets that everyone can get on board with - my draft Bill is steeped in science, evidence and has received input and direction from stakeholders from across a range of sectors.
