We are going to be able to tackle the ever-growing threat of climate change but it’s not going to be easy.

That was the suggestion from Lord Deben, Chair of the Committee on Climate Change (CCC), who spoke to future Net Zero Founder Sumit Bose earlier this month.

The former Environment Minister, who has been in position at the head of the CCC for more than a decade, said: “I think it’s a different world, in particular, the finance industry has changed and begun to understand that if it wants to be here in ten years’ time, it’s got to get this right.

“Because if we waste our resources and don’t provide for the effects of what we do, then the costs will be enormous. The cost will not just be felt by the community but also the individual companies, so yes they have changed.”
