The announcement was made today at the launch of the Active Travel Investment Plan and is an important and significant step in the Island’s response to climate change.

This Climate Change Bill will commit the Isle of Man to reach net-zero carbon emissions by 2050 in line with the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report.

Practical and imminent changes were also announced such as the ban of all fossil fuel boilers in new build housing by 2025, the ban of new fossil fuel cars by 2040 and the installation of cycle racks and showers at public buildings.

This follows the Low Emission Travel and Electric Vehicle strategy approved in March Tynwald.
