Claire Perry to instruct Committee on Climate Change to scope net zero goal

Speaking during the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) taking place in London this week, Perry said she would instruct the CCC to report on the implications of the Paris Agreement's target to limit a rise in global average temperature to "well below" 2C and aim for 1.5C.
