Climate change – How can the Government get to ‘net zero’?
The Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) Committee has launched an inquiry on net zero governance, which will examine the leadership and co-ordination which will be needed by government to deliver on the UK’s commitment to reach net zero by 2050.
The BEIS Committee is welcoming evidence for this inquiry on the effectiveness of current parliamentary scrutiny arrangements for climate change. The Committee’s call for evidence is issued ahead of a series of public evidence hearings which are likely to begin in the Autumn with stakeholders including energy and business organisations, think-tanks, the Climate Change Committee, and Government Ministers.
The closing date for submissions to the enquiry is Friday 27 August 2021.
