Clean Growth: A Great British Achievement

A reception to celebrate the success of British business in the low carbon economy and opportunities for clean growth in a net zero future


Since 1990, the UK has cut emissions by 42% while growing our economy by two-thirds, and we've now celebrated our first coal-free weeks in over a century. Almost 400,000 people across the country are working in low carbon jobs and their supply chains, a sector that is growing at a factor of two or three times the mainstream economy. This reception will celebrate this impressive British record, as well as the government’s Clean Growth Strategy which has led to this success.
