About this event

How might cutting-down carbon give the UK economy a cutting-edge.

The UK's net zero transition represents a major challenge for the UK, but also a major opportunity if we get it right. Many argue it could see the UK utilising its existing economic strengths to lead the way in cutting edge clean technology - creating jobs and new export opportunities. But with other countries holding these same ambitions, securing this success is far from guaranteed.

How realistic is it that the UK will be at the forefront of emerging clean technologies? What are the UK's existing strengths and how can they built over the coming decade? Will there be a role for services as well as goods in our net zero transition? Which areas of the country are best placed to benefit? And how best can we unlock the investment and innovation required to seize the opportunities for growth-enhancing green economic change?
