SETTING THE PACE: NORTHERN ENGLAND’S GREEN ECONOMY

12th September 2016

This event marked the launch of the Aldersgate Group’s latest report, Setting the pace: Northern England’s green economy, which considers how the North of England has benefitted from low carbon investment to date and what is needed to support its continued growth.

Speakers discussed the extent to which the North has seized opportunities in the growing low carbon economy, and debated what government at both local and national level can do to help the North attract further green investment.
