Watch the Energy Opportunity Conference highlights
The race to net-zero is on, and the public demand for action on climate change is clear right across the country. But delivering the next stage of emissions reduction through the 2020s will require coordinated action across society, business and the government.
With a history of having been the powerhouse for the rest of the country, the North once again has the capabilities to respond to a monumental challenge: to transition to a net-zero carbon economy by 2050.
Last month, the CBI’s Energy Opportunity Conference brought businesses from across the Northern powerhouse to discuss just that at the Newcastle Helix, a flagship sustainable development in the heart of the city. This is the latest event in our ongoing campaign to power the UK’s low-carbon future and provided a space for members to feed into this critical issue.
