edie - A major pro-business opportunity’: UK’s green economy reacts to the Skidmore Net-Zero Review

Reactions are coming in thick and fast to the Net Zero Review from MP Chris Skidmore, commissioned to map out a ‘pro-business, pro-growth’ pathway to delivering the UK’s 2050 climate target. Here, we round up how key green economy figures and groups are responding. Head of Heat, Steven Ashurt comments:

“Chris Skidmore’s thorough review rightly highlights that one of the biggest decarbonisation challenges facing us is how we heat our homes. Too much policy uncertainty and a lack of action means that the Government is currently far from reaching its target of having 600,000 heat pumps installed every year from 2028; last year we only reached 10% of that target.

“By putting in place clear signals, such as legislating for a ban on high carbon emitting boilers, this will enable a market to develop for low carbon heating solutions that is both competitive and provides quality to customers.”
