The British government said Tuesday it was charting a course where low-carbon energy is part of a competitive global future.
"You can go green and continue to prosper and develop -- that is the strong message we will be taking to the global community in the coming months," British Energy and Climate Change Secretary Ed Davey said in a statement.
The British government launched its so-called Paris 2015 document ahead of next year's international climate summit in France.
The document outlines how acting now on cutting greenhouse gas emissions can help deter future climate disasters. The government's agenda describes how it's giving "a decisive political signal" that the future of energy is low-carbon.
Davey said the United Kingdom is already feeling the worst impacts of climate change. The British government said winter storms in December and January led to the wettest period in the country since record-keeping began. There's an "increasing body of evidence" to suggest intense weather is "consistent with what is expected from the fundamental physics of a warming world."
There's a level of disparity between developed and developing countries on how to best coordinate climate policies.
