Election 2024: Where next for climate and nature?



Join us on Thursday 27 June from 5pm (arrivals from 4.30pm) for an in-person event at the London offices of Pinsent Masons, looking ahead at what the next government must do to put the UK on course for a prosperous net zero and nature-positive future.

This panel discussion, chaired by Financial Times associate editor and business columnist Pilita Clark, will feature Labour peer Baroness Young of Old Scone, former chair of the Climate Change Committee, Lord Deben and Dr Nina Skorupska CBE, chief executive of the Renewable Energy Association, discussing climate and environmental policy as we approach the election.

Speakers will share their reflections on the state of climate and environmental policy and its role in each party manifesto, while also looking ahead to what the next government must prioritise once in office.

When and where

Date: Thursday 27 June from 5pm – 6.30pm (arrivals from 4.30pm) followed by a drinks reception until 8pm
Location: Pinsent Masons, 30 Crown Pl, Earl St, London EC2A 4ES


This election is a crucial moment for climate and environmental policy in the UK. As global competition for green investment increases, it is imperative that the next government accelerates progress to ensure that we meet net zero and nature targets while maximising prosperity across the country.

The Aldersgate Group is hosting this event to gain insights from key figures from across the political spectrum on the offerings put forward by the major parties in their manifestos. Businesses are firmly on board with driving emissions reductions and improving the environment, but to play their part fully they need a stable policy landscape from the incoming government.

As the UK looks to tackle a number of challenges, from geopolitical instability to economic stagnation, it’s vital that we ensure climate and environmental action plays its part in solving these problems. The right approach can boost growth, improve energy security and drive down the cost of bills.

Places at this event will be confirmed a week ahead of the discussion. Capacity at our venue is limited. If we are oversubscribed priority will be given to close contacts and Aldersgate Group members.
