The transition to a zero carbon economy will deliver significant economic and industrial opportunities for the UK so long as we have supportive policies in place. Government figures show over 200,000 people already work directly in the low carbon economy.
The UK has already reduced its carbon emissions by 42% since 1990. But there are huge challenges ahead in developing the technologies and services to decarbonise heat, transport and industry, and ensure our building stock is energy efficient.
The Aldersgate Group works with its members to support evidence-based policy making that drives action to tackle these challenges and secure the jobs, productivity and export opportunities that will result.
