ABSTRACT
The author discusses the Climate Change Bill of Great Britain which aims to reduce carbon emissions by 60% by 2050. He argues that for the measure to succeed, all sectors will have to do their share. This includes non-energy intensive businesses which he says will continue to emit carbons by as much as 11% in 2030. A discussion on the inner workings of the measure is presented. The author suggests that more is expected from the government.
