Achieving zero carbon trade, investment and industry

At this online event some of the results from Green House's report Trade and Investment Requirements for Zero Carbon were presented, plus there were presentations by other partners in the Green European Foundation, Climate Emergency Economy project.

How do we break through the obstacles currently preventing the UK reaching net zero carbon emissions?
Come and share ideas on the policy changes needed to change to meet climate goals.

A new report from Green House Think Tank and the Green European Foundation introduces a new toolkit to aid policy makers and campaigners to rethink trade.​

Now we are hosting an online conference to share ideas on how to apply this toolkit to break through the obstacles preventing us reaching zero carbon goals – and develop new policies to meet zero carbon goals. Download Flyer.
