Reaching net zero by 2050 is going to require significant changes across the UK’s energy system, both in the public and private sector. Businesses have a key role to play in helping the government reach this target and many have already taken up their own decarbonisation initiatives.
In November, the New Statesman‘s Spotlight and Energy Monitor held ‘Net Zero Policy Week’. The week-long event brought together sector leaders, experts and policymakers to discuss what the challenges and opportunities are for the UK in meeting its net zero targets, through digital panels, live Q&As, and interviews.
An online panel discussion, chaired by Energy Monitor editor in chief Philippa Nuttall Jones, explored these key issues. The panel brought together Eliot Whittington, director of policy at the Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership, and Jason Longhurst, CEO of the UK Business Council for Sustainable Development, to discuss what businesses can teach government about achieving net zero.
