Carbon Emissions

Volume 491: debated on Thursday 23 April 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change what steps he is taking to encourage people to reduce the levels of carbon dioxide emissions attributable to them. (270308)

ACT ON CO2 is a major Government-led campaign which aims to engage citizens on climate change issues. It addresses the confusion and powerlessness which can impede people from taking action. It also encourages sustained behaviour change to help reduce carbon emissions and meet UK Government emissions targets. Marketing communication activity cannot change behaviour on its own; but together with policy and delivery body interventions, the campaign aims to secure the necessary behaviour changes.
