On Thursday 2 May, the Committee on Climate Change published it's highly-anticipated Net-Zero report, recommending the UK Government raise it's long-term greenhouse gas emissions reduction targets from 80% to:
- UK - Net-Zero by 2050
- Scotland - Net-Zero by 2045
- Wales - 95% by 2050
The CBI is developing the business response to Government following the Committee's recommendations via a roundtable event taking place on Friday 10 May 2019.
This unrivalled opportunity will provide the environment within which members will be able to hear directly from the Committee on Climate Change as their CEO, Chris Stark explains the evidence and economic analysis carried out to reach their recommendations.
It will be an important opportunity for the CBI and its members to quiz the Committee on their work, in order to best influence the UK and Devolved Governments to respond and implement legislation to enact a Net-Zero target and put the UK at the front of international action on climate change.
