Policy Briefing on Net Zero

Policy Briefing on Net Zero

The UK has been a global leader in the race to net zero. It was the first country to establish its target in law and it has cut emissions faster than any other major nation since 1990. It is also home to thousands of committed businesses who recognise the economic opportunities associated with the transition. However, other countries also have eyes on capturing their share of fast-growing green markets and have strengthened the incentives they offer to attract private investment.

With an election approaching, the CBI is seeking to influence political parties to create the conditions that will accelerate the net zero transition and re-establish the UK’s global leadership position in the green economy, recognising that this is not just good for the planet, but good for businesses and the economic wealth of the country too.

Join CBI members from the East of England at the online discussion to:

  • Hear from Jonathan Oxley, Senior Manager, Net Zero CBI about the political context for net zero and the CBI’s current priority messages to parties ahead of the election, including how the parties differentiating their positions in the Net Zero space
  • Influence the CBI’s narrative and policy positions in the context of shaping political party manifestos
  • Engage with other business leaders committed to achieving the UK’s Net Zero targets
  • Understand how the CBI’s Net Zero pledges help underpin the UK’s business ambitions.


The CBI is committed to creating safe environments where members and guests can network learn from each other and share ideas to help shape stronger businesses for the whole economy – please read our updated Code of Conduct.
