Britain wants to triple the percentage of trees planted over the next three years to help meet the 2050 net carbon emissions target as part of fighting climate change.

The UK wants to move forward with its environmental plans and encourages other countries to do so before the United Nations Climate Conference in Glasgow in November (COP26).

British Environment Minister George Eustis announced on Tuesday that his country will triple afforestation by May 2024, planting about 7,000 hectares of forest annually, the government said in a statement on Sunday, but did not provide further details.

Alok Sharma, the UK government’s climate commissioner and chair of COP26, warned Friday that world leaders must agree at the November summit to phase out carbon to prevent a climate catastrophe.

In preparation for COP26, the UK government has set itself four goals: securing net global carbon emissions, protecting communities and natural habitats from the impacts of climate change, mobilizing financing, and working with countries to accelerate action.
