Abstract

Last year, the UK was the first country in the world to pass legislation to become a net zero emissions economy by 2050. To achieve this, the entire UK economy will have to be radically transformed over 30 years through deep decarbonisation.

This commitment was ambitious at conception. Now it has to be achieved amidst an economic crisis, with social inequality brought to the fore through Black Lives Matter protests and the stark inequalities exposed by Covid-19. This has led to many voices calling for a green and equitable recovery, able to combine social and environmental concerns in climate change policy.
