This report analyses why our current approach to reaching our carbon targets is unsustainable, and puts forward an alternative direction of travel.
In doing so, we focus almost exclusively on the UK’s climate change and carbon policies rather than wider environmental issues, because we feel climate change policies are generating the greatest sources of tensions. In our view, it is these policies that are limiting the UK’s ability to rebalance and decarbonise our economy.
Given this direction of travel, we are seeking to generate debate with manufacturers, politicians, civil servants and climate change specialists on the challenges and solutions to bridging the green-growth divide.
The final report - Green and Growth: solutions for growing a green economy - will draw on these conversations to set out short- and long-term proposals that well set us on the road to a more sustainable approach to green and growth.
