In the run-up to International Women’s Day (IWD), ReWiRE held a lunchtime lowdown on the flurry of green policy announcements we saw at the end of 2020, from the Energy White Paper to the decision to end overseas fossil fuel finance. We looked ahead at the key policy gaps that remain on the road to net zero as we start to gain momentum into 2021.
In the run up to COP26, the UK Government is facing mounting pressure to firm up its plans for meeting its legally binding 2050 net zero target. While the target was the first of its kind from a developed nation, hurdles remain in addressing hard-to-abate sectors, ensuring a socially just transition and developing a joined-up approach to the green recovery.
As part of the theme for IWD #choosetochallange we chose to challenge these hurdles and anticipated action. We had a discussion on the key areas we would like to see in the anticipated Net Zero Strategy for the UK and also explored how, as ReWiRE, we would like to get involved in COP26.
