The independent Climate Change Committee believes that such green fuel can play a “significant role” in meeting long-term climate targets. The UK is currently aiming to reduce its emissions by at least 68% by 2030, compared to levels in 1990. It intends to have net zero emissions by 2050.
Based on a set of guidelines determined by SWGB, the scheme details best practices, sets minimum standards and lists prohibited practices. SWGB has a total of 30 founding members which together account for around 40% of total hectarage in the UK and produce around 6.8 million bottles per year.
