The UK’s Net-Zero Policy: Everything you need to know in 10 minutes

As part of a new multimedia channel launch, we sit down with James Fotherby, senior policy officer, Aldersgate Group, to get to the bottom of all the recent U-turns and changes to green policy in the UK.


At the edie 24 event in London last month, our award-winning editorial team hosted a series of punchy decisions intended to enlighten and inform audiences on the most complex and hotly debated topics in corporate sustainability.

In this discussion, edie’s content editor Sarah George talks about the mess that is the UK’s green policy with James Fotherby, senior policy officer, Aldersgate Group. The discussion looks at recent rollbacks to green policy and seeks to provide some clarity for businesses that want to push ahead with decarbonisation and climate plans.

This is the third in a six-part series of edie Extra discussions launched last month in London. Episode 1, focused on the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD), can be listened to or watched here.

Episode 2, is focused on decoupling emissions from growth, and can be listened to or watched here.
