The new Prime Minister of the United Kingdom enters office at a profoundly challenging moment. The country is facing a cost of living crisis, driven by skyrocketing energy prices, rising commodity costs and the prospect of a prolonged economic recession.

This new manifesto from the Aldersgate Group clearly outlines how ambitious climate and environmental policies have a key role to play in the UK weathering these crises, building economic prosperity and resilience.

It features a comprehensive selection of policy recommendations, backed by business, to address our energy inefficient homes, transition to a secure and reliable renewable power grid, and deliver a prosperous net zero economy that creates jobs across the country.

The speakers at this launch event represent major UK businesses and NGOs, and will explore the recommendations of the manifesto, outlining their thoughts on what to the new government should prioritise to address the challenges the UK faces in a sustainable way.
