Professor Corinne Le Quere appointed to the UK’s Climate Change Committee (the CCC)

Congratulates to Professor Corinne Le Quere on her recent appointment, following a competitive process, to the UK’s Climate Change Committee (the CCC).  The CCC is an independent, statutory body established under the Climate Change Act 2008 and advises the UK Government and Devolved Administrations on emissions targets, reporting to Parliament on progress made in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and preparing for climate change.  Hence, this is a significant appointment for TYN and ENV and a personal endorsement of Corinne’s reputation.  More information of the announcement made on 29 March can be found on the CCC website at: https://www.theccc.org.uk/2016/03/29/professor-corinne-le-quere-and-professor-nick-chater-join-the-committee-on-climate-change/
