Industrial Decarbonisation Strategy

Passed in 2021
This strategy, presented to parliament by the Department for Business, Energy, and Industrial Strategy, sets out the UK government's approach to decarbonisation in key industrial sectors: metals and minerals, chemicals, food and drink, paper and pulp, ceramics, glass, oil refineries and less energy intensive manufacturing. The strategy notes that the industrial sector is currently responsible for around one sixth of UK emissions. One of the stated goals of the strategy is to provide clear signals to industry and investors about the government's role for enabling the transition to a low carbon economy within the industrial sector. The strategy describes the policy framework that will be used to drive decarbonisation through the 2030s and 2040s via a combination of measures including: carbon pricing; product standards and labelling; research and development; direct investment
