Tackling climate change as we recover from Covid

Onward hosted a discussion, in partnership with OVO Energy, exploring the challenges and trade-offs of tackling climate change during our recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic and featuring high-profile panellists.

The panel explored how we can, in the words of the Prime Minister, “build back better” from the pandemic and use the recovery to spur the transition to a net zero economy. Key questions included how we can maximise the opportunities the transition will provide, the importance of maintaining public support, and how the UK can use the upcoming COP26 conference later this year as a springboard to inspire, and lead, practical global climate action and policy.
