Government and other agencies

There are three departments that are important reference points for the LCFD project:

Department for Transport

Department for Communities and Local Government

Department of Energy and Climate Change

The Committee on Climate Change – CCC – is an independent body established under the Climate Change Act (2008). It advises the UK Government on setting and meeting carbon budgets and on preparing for the impacts of climate change.
