About this talk

Sponsored by ScottishPower and the Scottish Government What does The Green Recovery mean to your organisation – and to you personally? it is imperative that choices in the coming months steer a recovery that drives vital new economic activity, accelerates our transition to net zero, and strengthens our resilience to the impacts of climate change after the pandemic wanes. It is vital to foster green structural transformation cutting CO2 emissions, as well as boosting our national and regional economies and, not slip back into the ‘old normal’ which will exacerbate irreversible climate change, biodiversity loss, and other environmental risks. From government to industry, academia to members of the public who took part in the UK Climate Assembly (more of that in tomorrow morning’s opening webinar) all agree that a green recovery is essential. We have asked our speakers, who between them represent government; a major utility; the jobs market – and skills; engineers; the energy economy; and a major city, what it means to them, and how they see the Green Recovery taking place.
