Fuelling the future: Prosperity and security in the net zero age.

The essay collection brings together ten contributions from senior centre-right politicians from Ukraine, Chile, South Africa, Mexico, Australia, Scotland, Wales, Switzerland, Germany and Norway to set out an ambitious and conservative path away from reliance on fossil fuels and towards net zero.

The collection, which features a foreword from former UK Foreign Secretary and Leader of the Conservative Party, William Hague, sets out the different components of a centre-right approach to the transition away from fossil fuels, based around harnessing private enterprise and seizing the economic opportunities of decarbonisation.
