Getting to Zero: A Call for Evidence

2021-05-20T11:20:25+00:00 January 19th, 2021|Getting to zero|

Following the launch of the Getting to Zero commission at the beginning of January, Onward is giving stakeholders the opportunity to contribute evidence to our first major research report of the programme.

This upcoming report will uncover which industries face the most change during the net zero transition and what that means for the people and places who rely on them. It will put forward politically possible solutions to smooth the transition for those people and industries, putting the UK on track for net zero by 2050 in a way that works for, not against, voters.

The evidence submission asks five specific questions:

  1. Without measures to offset or abate emissions, what level of emissions do you believe you can remove from your industry or organisation with existing technology and under current government schemes?
  2. Which regions/countries within the United Kingdom will face the most disruption in your industry/organisation as a result of the net zero transition? Please answer as specifically as possible and if possible provide data to support your estimation?
  3. How many jobs do you believe are likely to be lost in your industry as a result of the transition to net zero over the next thirty years? Please answer as specifically as possible and if possible provide data to support your estimation?
  4. How many jobs do you believe will be created in your industry as a result of the transition to net zero over the next thirty years? Please answer as specifically as possible and if possible provide data to support your estimation?
  5. What technologies, in your view, offer the greatest opportunity for decarbonisation in your industry and how do you believe Government should support its rollout?
If you are a stakeholder that wants to submit evidence please fill out the submission form:
