Climate emergency response: Assessing the UK’s progress towards net-zero
We begin with a keynote talk and Q&A session with the chairman of the committee which advises the Government on how it can reduce emissions to net-zero before 2050. How has the Covid-19 pandemic impacted the UK’s decarbonisation pathway? And what must happen next at a policy level to accelerate the net-zero transition? Lord Deben sets the scene for Net-Zero Live 2020.
