Net zero: Job creator or job destroyer?
Join us to discuss the impact the net zero transition will have on jobs at this exclusive event for CEN supporters and councillors.
Time & Location
19 Mar 2024, 18:00 – 18:45
About the event
Undoubtedly the UK’s net zero transition will impact the labour market with rapid change expected over the next decade.
Should workers in carbon-intensive jobs be worried about their futures? Or will the net zero transition create new, higher-skilled and future-proofed job opportunities for these workers which will result in them being better paid?
How can we make sure workers have the skills and training so they’re prepared to seize the opportunities created by the net zero transition? And who should be responsible for this? Should the government get involved or should it be left to industry to make sure workers have the skills needed to drive growth?
Our panellists will include CEN MP Alexander Stafford, who sits on the Energy Security and Net Zero Committee, and Douglas Lumsden, MSP for the North East Scotland region and Shadow Cabinet Secretary for Net Zero, Energy, and Transport.
