The UK was the first major economy to set legally-binding climate commitments, the first to commit to the phase out of coal power and is now the first to put a net zero target into legislation. But legislating for net zero is only the first step, it must be accompanied by bold and effective policies, and a clear plan. This London Climate Action Week event, hosted by Green Alliance and IPPR, discusses this momentous decision and what needs to be done now to end the UK’s contribution to climate change.
We welcomed a fantastic range of panellists to discuss this new legislation and to share ideas on how we can make the most of this 'climate moment'.
We were joined by Rt Hon Ed Miliband, MP for Doncaster North and chair of the IPPR’s Environmental Justice Commission, Isabella Gornall, managing director of Seahorse Environmental Communications, Scarlett Westbrook, a Birmingham School Striker for Climate, and Leah Davis, senior adviser to the deputy mayor of London.
