Climate change: Everyone's business—options for greenhouse gas reduction in the UK

McKinsey was commissioned by the Confederation of British Industry (CBI) to produce an analysis of the options for greenhouse gas reduction in the United Kingdom. We have worked with industry experts, academics, and leading businesses, and this CBI Climate Change Task Force report shows that the United Kingdom's carbon reduction targets for 2020 are likely to be missed but that 2050 goals, while stretching, can be achieved at a manageable cost—provided a greater sense of urgency is now adopted by government, business, and consumers.
