Strongly supporting the need for climate change regulation

InfluenceMap Comment:

Advocating for UK policy makers to support government regulation to respond to climate change by calling for publication of emissions reductions plan (CBI, Press Release, July 2017)

Extract from Source:

Delivering a secure, affordable and low-carbon future remains critical to our future prosperity. We should see this moment as a chance to build our way to a new era of growth, productivity and shared prosperity. For energy and climate change, this means creating the conditions that will allow the market to thrive by working through the backlog of key energy and climate change policy decisions that have been parked. For the CBI, there are five priorities for business and government that will be key to delivering the much-needed certainty that will allow the UK to invest, innovate and create a competitive low-carbon economy: [...] With the right approach, there are huge opportunities for the UK to benefit from a thriving low-carbon global economy, and business is now looking to government to show leadership. With the 5th Carbon Budget now setting a direction of travel out to 2030, the UK government should publish their emissions reduction plan as soon as possible to explain how they plan to play their part in allowing business to innovate and invest, as well as their vision for how we will decarbonise in a secure and affordable way.

Strongly supporting the need for climate change regulation

InfluenceMap Comment:

Supporting UK Government climate policy and calling for more attention issues such as decarbonising heat and increasing energy efficiency (CBI, Press release, November 2017)

Extract from Source:

As set out in the CBI’s report, with the right plan, and support for innovation, the UK could become a global leader in the low-carbon economy; maintaining the UK’s industrial competitiveness, while also building advantages in low-carbon markets.[…] It is right that the Strategy celebrates the progress the UK has made but, as stated in the CBI’s report, it is important to keep the foot on the accelerator to deliver secure, affordable and low-carbon energy through to 2030 and beyond. […] As set out in the CBI’s report, more heavy lifting is needed across a range of sectors, specifically low-carbon heat and tackling the challenge of energy efficiency. The Clean Growth Strategy recognises the barriers in these areas, specifically the challenge presented by such a mixed housing stock in the UK. However, the plan lacked the details about how the UK could unlock the benefits that come from decarbonising heat and driving energy efficiency. More detail is expected in 2018, which business looks forward to engaging on as it comes out.
