BUILDING A NET ZERO EMISSIONS ECONOMY: NEXT STEPS FOR GOVERNMENT AND BUSINESS

26th March 2020

EVENT POSTPONED - More information coming soon

Getting to a net zero emissions economy by 2050 represents a defining challenge for this government. Policy decisions taken during this parliamentary term will determine whether the UK is credibly and demonstrably on track for reaching its target and whether UK businesses can become leading providers of the low carbon goods and services the world economy will increasingly demand.

This event will launch the Aldersgate Group’s latest report, which will set out what a credible net zero delivery plan should look like and where businesses most need support from the policy and regulatory framework. Following an overview of the Aldersgate Group’s report and a political keynote, a multi-sector business panel will debate what they see as the most important policy priorities to put the UK on a path to a net zero and competitive economy.
