The Sixth Carbon Budget will set the 'world's most ambitious' climate change targets, the government has pledged, as the UK bids to reduce emissions by 78% by 2035.

The Sixth Carbon Budget, a landmark report released in December by the Climate Change Committee (CCC), made a series of recommendations to help the UK reach net zero emissions by 2050.
