The UK government has set the glob-al bench mark by enshrining into law a target of net zero by 2050 and is the first major economy to do so. Many more governments are expected to follow this move. To keep the increase in global temperature below 2°C, compared to pre-industrial levels, the EU has passed legislation to be a net zero by 2050 as compared to 1990.
