The Net Zero Strategy, which includes ambitious policies for my department, remains HM Government policy and has not been quashed. The judge made no criticism about the substance of our plans which are well on track and, in fact, the claimants themselves described them as ‘laudable’ during the proceedings. We anticipate publishing a more detailed response to the Court Order on the Net Zero Strategy in due course.
