Chief executive of the Carbon Trust on the UK government’s Net Zero commitment

12 June 2019

Tom Delay CBE, chief executive, the Carbon Trust:

“This ambitious new Net Zero by 2050 climate change target for the UK sends an important message – environmental sustainability and economic prosperity can go hand in hand. We do not have to compromise on climate action. The Committee on Climate Change’s 1.5 degree recommendation was pivotal, making a compelling case for action in response to the existential crisis we are facing. The UK’s Climate Change Act set the global standard in climate leadership and this raises the bar. It is in the UK’s national interest to drive action, allowing businesses and the wider civil society to benefit from the transition to a sustainable, low carbon economy.”
