Event description

Description

With public and political concern about climate change at an all-time high, business needs to show it is part of the solution. Gain expert insight from the CBI Head of Energy & Climate Change at this policy briefing.

The transition to a low-carbon economy presents new opportunities for business, as well as challenges that needs to be overcome. The UK has set an ambitious target to reduce emissions to net-zero by 2050. This is a vital response to the threat of climate change and the country’s international commitments to act on this.

The business community is already playing a huge role in responding to the challenge by developing new technologies and services to help reduce emissions. 2020 sees the UK host the important UN COP26 climate conference, which will provide a major platform for the business community to demonstrate the action they are taking to tackle climate change.
