2050? The pathway to net-zero carbon emissions

The government has committed to achieving net-zero carbon emissions by 2050 but is that achievable? And what is the best way to get there?

Speakers:

Climate change has captured the public’s attention in 2019, with demonstrations springing up across the country. The UK government responded by legislating to achieve an ambitious net-zero emissions goal by 2050, ending the country’s contribution to global warming within 30 years. But is one of the world’s most ambitious climate targets achievable in just 3 decades? What is the best way to cut carbon emissions? And what role can the energy industry play?

The cost of doing business

A panel discussion on how to lower the cost of doing business and make the UK a more attractive place for entrepreneurs and risk-takers.

Whilst employment is at a record high in the UK, many businesses of all sizes are struggling. The weight of tax and regulation which has been placed on wealth creators grows ever longer, and piecemeal solutions from Whitehall often add to the problem. This panel will ask what solutions can be found to lower the cost of doing business, and how to make the UK a more attractive place for entrepreneurs and risk-takers.

How to unleash growth in the North

While the cities of the North are individually strong, collectively they could be made stronger.

Speakers:

The whole is less than the sum of its parts. How can we change this? What investment is needed to create the liveability and the connections that the North needs to grow and thrive?
