The Isle of Man could fail to meet its first interim climate target, but the chief minister says if it is missed, "we'll be very close".

At a summit of the British-Irish Council, Alfred Cannan said hitting the 2030 target is becoming "increasingly tight".

The Climate Change Act 2021 sets out three legally binding targets as the Island makes its journey to net-zero.

By 2030, government is required by law to have ensured carbon emissions are cut by at least 35-percent.

As part of that, electricity must be decarbonised by 100-percent.

Manx Radio's Christian Jones sat down to discuss the targets with Chief Minister Alfred Cannan.
