Rain Newton-Smith, CBI Chief Economist, said:
“Today’s detailed analysis from the CCC demonstrates how important the coming years are for making progress to this important goal.
“As technology costs continue to fall, the pathways to net-zero are becoming clearer. Now is the time for business and government to work together to deliver a transition that will secure both our economic recovery and sustainable growth well into the future.
“Last year the CBI highlighted the 2020s as a ‘decade of delivery’ for achieving net-zero emissions. We have a short window of opportunity between now and COP26 to set the clear strategy we need to meet net-zero commitments. With that in place, business, government and society stand ready to deliver.”
