Net Zero Review: Call for evidence
20th October 2022
The BEIS Secretary of State has commissioned an independent review of the government’s approach to delivering its net zero target, to ensure we are delivering net zero in a way that is pro-business and pro-growth.
The review will consider how our approach to net zero can:
- deliver maximum economic growth and investment, driving opportunities for private investment, jobs, innovation, exports, and growth right across the UK
- support UK energy security and affordability for consumers and business and the need to rapidly increase and strengthen UK energy production and supply
- minimise costs borne by businesses and consumers, particularly in the short-term
The review will assess the economic co-benefits associated with different policies and how we can drive down the cost curve for net zero technologies. It will consider innovative approaches and ways of delivering our target that ensure the government maximises the economic opportunities presented by net zero.
