The role of regulation in restoring nature and delivering net zero


On Tuesday 12 March Aldersgate Group hosted an in-person event to launch our latest report on the role of regulation in restoring nature and delivering net zero.

The report, commissioned from Frontier Economics, explores how regulation can be effectively applied and implemented to restore nature and reach net zero targets, while also delivering economic benefits. It will establish principles for good regulation alongside a framework for regulators to assess current and future measures.




Date: 12th March 9.30am to 11am
Location: Frontier Economics, Midcity Place, 71 High Holborn, London, WC1V 6DA

Regulation is an important tool for governments to achieve desirable outcomes and encourage positive behaviours and practices. Well-designed and properly implemented regulation has a powerful role to play in supporting economic growth and delivering on climate and environmental ambitions.

The event will mark the launch of the Aldersgate Group’s latest report on the subject, written by Frontier Economics, and examine what we can learn from past regulation, and how we can improve it going forward.
