The UK strategy for cutting greenhouse gas emissions could exceed targets set by parliament, government lawyers told the High Court today.

Three campaign organisations are taking the government to court today over its net zero strategy.
Friends of the Earth announced this morning it has permission to proceed with a court challenge against two of the government’s landmark climate strategies.
The UK government is being sued by two environmental groups which say the net zero strategy fails to include policies needed to make promised cuts in carbon emissions.
The UK’s climate advisor has praised government plans to cut carbon emissions but called for detailed plans on how some ambitions would be achieved.
