Committee on Climate Change

The Committee on Climate Change (the CCC) is an independent, statutory body established under the Climate Change Act 2008. Its purpose is to advise the UK Government and Devolved Administrations on emissions targets and report to Parliament on progress made in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and preparing for climate change.

Climate UK helped the CCC's Adaptation Sub Committee to engage a wider audience for the launch of its 2014 annual progress report. A series of seven satellite events were organised at locations around the country for local stakeholders and the proceedings in London streamed live to each venue. Over 100 people participated in the event remotely and had the opportunity to ask questions to London and discuss the local implications of the progress report, which was concerned with climate risks to infrastructure, business and public health.

This was followed up in July 2015 when Climate UK set up a live web broadcast for the CCC to share their latest findings, which included their first statutory adaptation report. Over 90 people participated either in person at 1 of 5 venues or remotely, from throughout the UK and beyond.
