Closing remarks from Lord Deben, Chair of the Committee on Climate Change
The Conservative Environment Network is delighted to invite you to our Net Zero Conference. Following Minister Claire Perry's request to the CCC for guidance on reaching Net Zero emissions, the Conference will explore a conservative approach to the questions posed by introducing this target.
Net zero means reducing emissions to as close to zero as possible, and balancing remaining emissions by soaking carbon out of the atmosphere by, for example, planting trees. Each panel will consider how the sector can achieve Net Zero, and why its so important that they do. Taking place just two days after the 10th anniversary of the Climate Change Act, the conference will look at the success of the Act so far in spurring low carbon industries like offshore wind, and at the economic opportunities for the UK in going Net Zero.
We hope you'll join us for this important discussion.
