Big Zero Report 2022

The government is set to publish the findings of a review into the UK’s target to reach net zero emissions by 2050.

The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy has confirmed that the review, carried out by Chris Skidmore, will be published in the new year.

The much-anticipated review will consider how the UK’s net zero target can deliver maximum economic growth and investment, support energy security and minimise costs borne by businesses and consumers.

A government spokesperson said the UK “remained absolutely committed to net zero but with Russia weaponising energy across Europe, we must make sure we reach our target in a way that protects energy security and does not place undue burdens on businesses or consumers.

“We thank Chris Skidmore for his efforts in producing this rapid review and will publish it in the new year.”

A few days ago, Mr Skidmore said: “With more than 1,800 responses, over 50 evidence sessions across every region and nation of the UK speaking to more than 1,000 people, the review is the widest engagement on net zero undertaken so far.”
