BCC Comments on PM Climate Change Announcement
Commenting on the Prime Minister’s Climate Change Announcement, Claire Walker Co-Executive Director of the British Chambers of Commerce said:
“The UK’s decision to show global leadership on the critical issue of climate change is laudable. For many businesses, this environmental ambition could bring growth across a range of sectors, technologies and markets.
“But this government, and future governments, will need to work hard to support businesses through the transition to net zero emissions. To ensure that this important environmental target is achieved, without damaging growth and investment, deep consultation with businesses will be needed throughout to develop credible and detailed plans that command cross party support and stand the test of time.”
