The carbon crunch?

Delivering the next phase of the Net Zero transition

Over the course of the 2020s, the UK will embark on the crucial next phase of the transition toward a Net Zero economy. This will touch our lives and livelihoods like never before, as we decarbonise how we travel and heat our homes. And with COP 26 starting in Glasgow in little over a months’ time, the UK will need to demonstrate global leadership by facing up to the challenges ahead.

How should Net Zero be put at the heart of Britain’s post-pandemic economic plan? What are the barriers to making progress on decarbonisation? And how can we ensure that the costs and benefits of the Net Zero transition are distributed fairly across people and places throughout the country?

The Resolution Foundation is hosting an in-person and interactive webinar – as part of The Economy 2030 Inquiry, funded by the Nuffield Foundation – to debate and answer these questions. Following a presentation of the key highlights from new Resolution Foundation research on the choices and trade-offs around Net Zero, we will hear from two leading experts on where the UK should be heading.

The event will be open for a limited number of people to physically attend, and also broadcast via YouTube and the Resolution Foundation website. Viewers will be able to submit questions to the panel before and during the event.
