Chris Skidmore, the UK’s former Energy Minister, has published his Net Zero Review – headlined by 129 recommendations maximising opportunities from creating a green economy. The recommendations cover areas including supporting business to play a greater role in the green economy, making better use of infrastructure and making UK homes more energy efficient. The Review is comprised of two parts, with the first part exploring the opportunity, and benefits to individuals and the economy. The second sets out a roadmap for how government and industry can work to better exploit the opportunities and catalyse action in individual industries. Proposals made by Skidmore’s Mission Zero report include creating sustainable governance structures for net zero and laying the groundwork to increase investment in net zero research and development through to 2050. Chris Skidmore, Chair of the Net Zero Review, said: “We should be proud of the lead the UK has taken in tackling climate change, having exceeded expectations so far in our race to net zero emissions by 2050. We lead in areas including clean technologies, science, manufacturing and green finance – areas that, if managed right, can lead to new jobs and strong economic growth.”
