banner displaying the event text as below, along with headshots of the speakers

The Climate Change Act commits the UK government to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions to achieve net zero by 2050. In June 2023 the Climate Change Committee (CCC) published its annual report on the UK’s progress towards net zero, which followed the government’s Carbon Budget Delivery Plan published in March.

This session will explore how we can better use evidence and recommendations, such as those from the Climate Change Committee, WSP and Energy Saving Trust, to sell the policies that put us on a strong path to meeting net zero.


  • Chair: Chris Skidmore OBE MP, Environment APPG Chair
  • Chris Stark, chief executive, Climate Change Committee
  • Toby Thornton, technical director, future mobility expertise & innovation lead for transport, WSP
  • Stew Horn, head of policy, Energy Saving Trust
