Growth on the ballot: Investing in Britain’s green future

15:00 27 Jun 2024 London Chamber of Commerce and Industry

As the UK prepares for the upcoming General Election, the focus of every major party is on economic growth. Join us for a critical discussion exploring how the UK can turbocharge investment, and seize the growth opportunities of the net zero transition.

With the election campaign in full swing, questions remain over how the UK must overcome the economic challenges of recent years, while capitalising on the green growth opportunities of the future. To tackle low productivity and spur growth, there is growing business consensus that the UK should support its high-growth green industries, which are growing around nine times faster than the rest of the UK’s economy. Prioritising green growth will be critical to ensure the UK’s long-term productivity and tackle the climate and nature crises at the scale and speed required.

The next Government must be ready to deliver the strategy and ambition needed to unlock investment, and support jobs and infrastructure across the UK. In an increasingly competitive international environment for green investment, ensuring the UK remains an attractive place to invest is more important than ever. 

The panel of leading business and political figures will discuss measures the next Government must put in place to deliver a thriving, sustainable British economy and ensure that the benefits are spread across the four nations of the UK.

Register here to attend Growth on the ballot: Investing in Britain’s green future.
