Jersey's Environment Minister says he will now bring forward a plan on how to make the island carbon neutral by 2030.
It comes after Jersey's government backed a proposition on the Climate Change Emergency put forward by Deputy Rob Ward yesterday.
Deputy John Young will now set out a plan and present it to the States Assembly by the end of 2019.
Deputy Young has admitted it will be an "extremely ambitious and challenging" task to make the island carbon neutral within the next decade and will require new polices and measures.
He said that he will be encouraging the Assembly to be "brave and make difficult decisions to reduce our carbon emissions."
