Mission Zero


In 2022, the Government commissioned the Rt Hon Chris Skidmore MP to lead a review on the UK’s progress to deliver net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. The report of this review – entitled Mission Zero – was published in January 2023. The Review concluded that net zero is a massive opportunity for economic growth and the UK is well placed to realise that opportunity, but swift action was needed.

The Foundation for Science and Technology organised a webinar on 21 March 2023 to discuss the recommendations of the Mission Zero report, along with the latest report by the IPCC, and the actions needed to get to net zero in the UK by 2050. The speakers were: The Rt Hon Chris Skidmore MP, Chair of the Net Zero Review; Lord Adair Turner, Chairman, Energy Transitions Commission; and Professor Emily Shuckburgh OBE, Director, Cambridge Zero, University of Cambridge.

A video recording, presentation slides and speaker audio from the event are available on the FST website: www.foundation.org.uk/Events/2023/Mission-Zero-Getting-to-Net-Zero-by-2050
