UK CLIMATE POLICY: SETTING OUR ECONOMY ON THE RIGHT PATH?

14th January 2015

2015 marks a critical juncture in climate policy. The broad lines of the EU 2030 climate and energy package have been agreed, the General Election will yield the parliament that will take us through to 2020 (the date which marks the target for many of our current objectives on energy efficiency, renewables and emissions reductions), and major international climate change talks will take place in Paris later in the year.

In recognition of this pivotal year, the Aldersgate Group hosted a business panel to discuss the current UK policy framework, building on a recent report by Cambridge Econometrics, which outlines the macroeconomic implications of the UK meeting its carbon budgets.
