Net-zero applies to the whole of the economy – the energy sources, industrial processes, supply chains, infrastructure, ancillary services and demand. Systematically addressing these in a coherent way will be key to successfully reaching net-zero.
The economy is changing however, from digitalisation to robotics to materials and demographics. The net-zero economy of 2050 will be the product of all these changes.
We are deeply knowledgeable in the fields of industry, innovation, energy and infrastructure policy. Our staff have expertise working across Europe, Asia, Africa, and North and South America.
In order to establish fair and climate resilient societies for all, we are building the political and institutional frameworks to make the necessary economic changes possible.
- Our work supported efficient, climate-friendly cooling highlighted on the mainstage at the UN Secretary General’s Climate Action Summit in September 2019 with real economy commitments made by governments, cities, industry and financial institutions to support an accelerated transition.
- Following our on future energy systems, we saw major funding for large-scale demonstrators provided by the UK government under their Prospering from the energy revolution fund.
- Our involvement as a founding member of the business-led Energy Efficiency Infrastructure Group helped to align countless other stakeholders’ calls for making energy efficiency a UK infrastructure investment priority. As a result, all main parties committed to major energy efficiency programmes in their 2019 election manifestos, with implementation to support green post-pandemic recovery now the focus.
