The UK has received an E rating for its climate policies from the Climate Policy Tracker report, launched by WWF and Ecofys.

The UK has received an E rating for its climate policies from the Climate Policy Tracker report, launched by WWF and Ecofys.

After rating countries within the EU from A to G, the report concluded that Europe "needs to triple its efforts to reach targets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 80% by 2050".

Although the findings recognised the UK's efforts to make all new homes zero carbon, it criticised "a lack of support in making existing buildings energy efficient".

WWF's head of climate change in the UK, Keith Allott, said: "The UK, like all member states, needs to scan its full policy portfolios to address the weaknesses that show up in this report, especially in transport and energy efficiency."
