How Do We Move from Climate Ambition to Action?

In the fight against climate change, organisations must find ways to bridge the gap between green ambition and action. Our Non-Executive Director Forum Partner, EY, attempted to do just that. In this report, they share the findings of their UK Climate Business Forum to help businesses overcome barriers and to focus on common objectives. 
 
Key takeaways include: 
  • According to the Government’s ‘Build Back Better’ plan, 80 percent of UK emissions come from infrastructure sectors, including power, heat, heavy industry and transport. Therefore, decarbonising the industry will be a critical part of the nation’s Net Zero transition plan.
  • Ecosystems are under pressure from pollution, intensive agriculture and farming. 41 percent of species in the UK have been decreasing in abundance since 1970. A further 15 percent of species are in danger of extinction.
  • The Government can support climate transition plans by creating legally binding targets to reverse biodiversity loss by 2030 and expand the commitment to protect 30 percent of the UK’s land by 2030.
