The plans contain broader aims to make Britain a "world-leader" in carbon capture technology and the City of London a "global centre of green finance".
As well as offshore wind, the government is promising 5GW of low carbon hydrogen by 2030 for transport, industry and homes, an acceleration of nuclear deployment and new carbon capture schemes.
The ban on new sales of petrol and diesel cars and vans has been brought forward by five years from a previous target date of 2035.
Britain previous year became the first G7 country to set in law an overall net zero emission target by 2050, which will require wholesale changes in the way Britons travel, use energy and eat. A key aspect of the plan is to "level up" all areas of the country, with industrial heartlands in the North East, Yorkshire and the Humber, West Midlands, Scotland and Wales all focal points of the strategy.
Around 10,000 jobs could be created in the nuclear industry through the development of "the next generation of small and advanced reactors", Johnson is to announce.
Homes and public buildings: Making homes, schools and hospitals greener, warmer and more energy efficient, whilst creating 50,000 jobs by 2030, and a target to install 6,00,000 heat pumps every year by 2028.
Nature: Protecting and restoring our natural environment, planting 30,000 hectares of trees every year, whilst creating and retaining thousands of jobs.
The prime minister said his plan will mobilize almost $16 billion (£12 billion) in government investments to create and support these jobs.
"Although this year we have taken a completely different path than expected, the United Kingdom is looking to the future and seizing opportunities to return to green plans", the prime minister was quoted as saying.RIA News".
Jet Zero and greener maritime: Supporting difficult-to-decarbonize industries to become greener through research projects for zero-emission planes and ships.
The government said it will spent £500 million over the next four years to develop and scale up production of electric vehicle batteries, which will create jobs in the Midlands, the North East and North Wales.
Under the new plans, it will invest 1.3 billion pounds on expanding electric vehicle chargepoints in homes and streets across England, and make 582 pounds million available in grants for people to buy zero or ultra-low emission vehicles.
Rebecca Newsom of Greenpeace UK said the "landmark" announcement was a big step forward, although she regretted the inclusion of "speculative solutions, such as nuclear and hydrogen from fossil fuels, that will not be taking us to zero emissions anytime soon, if ever".
