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?


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?

With our membership of the EU drawing to a close, and preparations for a no-deal scenario well underway, we will examine what levers the government should pull if we do leave without a deal - based on the CPS's own work on what a stimulus package should look like.
