VIDEO: Sky News' Mickey Carroll takes a look at how business enthusiasm for the net zero transition remains undimmed at this year's Net Zero Festival, despite recent government policy changes

This year's Net Zero Festival came hot on the heels of a spate of green policy changes from the UK government, with Prime Minister Rishi Sunak attempting to reframe the transition as a potentially costly endeavour for consumers.

But despite that change in tack from Number 10, business support for the transition and the opportunities it offers remained undimmed among attendees at the Net Zero Festival 2023, as Mickey Carroll from Sky News reported from the event.
