A panel discussion event approx 90 mins
The Political Economy of Net Zero
The goal of 'net zero emissions' is now enshrined in UK law, and is being adopted by businesses, local councils and other countries. But what will it take to achieve it? What changes will be needed - in how we eat, travel and use energy? And who will bear the cost?
Chaired by University of Sheffield political economist Prof Michael Jacobs, this live conversation will bring together four experts from different viewpoints: a government economist; a business leader trying to 'go green'; a trade union leader seeking to protect jobs; and a community activist campaigning for a 'Green New Deal'.
Professor Michael Jacobs, Sheffield Political Economy Research Institute (SPERI)
