Climate laws will be tightened to cut carbon emissions effectively to zero, the government has said.
Under current law, emissions must be cut by 80% by 2050 - but ministers have said this does not go far enough.
Following the climate deal in Paris, it is clear the UK must not increase CO2 at all because the warming threat is so severe, they added.
No details of the law change have been given - and critics said the UK was failing to meet even current targets.
The global climate agreement, which was finalised at a summit in Paris in December, commits to keeping global temperatures "well below" 2C (3.6F) above pre-industrial times and limit the amount of greenhouse gases emitted by human activity.
