Aldersgate Group hosts a business panel to discuss the current UK policy framework followed by a drinks reception
2015 marks a critical juncture in climate policy. The broad lines of the EU 2030 climate and energy package have been agreed, the General Election will yield the parliament that will take us through to 2020 (the date which marks the target for many of our current objectives on energy efficiency, renewables and emissions reductions), and major international climate change talks will take place in Paris later in the year.
In recognition of this pivotal year, the Aldersgate Group will host a business panel to discuss the current UK policy framework, building on a recent report by Cambridge Econometrics, which outlines the macroeconomic implications of the UK meeting its carbon budgets.
DATE - 14th January 2015
The event will be chaired by James Murray of BusinessGreen. Other confirmed speakers include:
Keynote: Professor Paul Ekins, Director of the Institute for Sustainable Resources, University College London
- Danielle Lane, Head of Regulatory and Stakeholder Relations UK, Dong Energy
- Benet Northcote, Group Head of CSR, John Lewis Partnership
- Tim Morris, Head of Public Affairs, Tata Steel Europe
- Mike Sewell, Head of Energy, Kier Group
- Anthony Hobley, Chief Executive Officer, Carbon Tracker
