"The UK Low Carbon Transition Plan plots how the UK will meet the 34 percent cut in emissions on 1990 levels by 2020 – UK emissions of the basket of six greenhouse gases covered by the Kyoto Protocol were 22.0 per cent lower in 2008 than in the base year, down from 779.9 to 608.4 million tonnes carbon dioxide equivalent. The Plan shows how reductions in the power sector and heavy industry; transport; homes and communities; workplaces and jobs; and farming, land and waste sectors could enable carbon budgets to 2022 to be met.

The Plan is an overarching document and a number of more detailed documents were published alongside it, including Low Carbon Transport – a Greener Future (DfT), the UK Low Carbon Industrial Strategy (BIS and DECC), and the UK Renewable Energy Strategy (DECC)."
