Should the UK’s response to coronavirus take 2050 net zero goal into account?

The Treasury Committee is relaunching an inquiry into the decarbonisation of the UK economy and green finance

The Treasury Committee is seeking additional written evidence on how and whether the UK's response to coronavirus should take the 2050 net zero carbon goal into account.

It is relaunching an inquiry into the decarbonisation of the UK economy and green finance, with the evidence addressing whether the Treasury's support packages to business should distinguish between companies based on how much they pollute.

The Committee is also inviting views on whether the Treasury should directly be funding green infrastructure projects as part of its coronavirus spending package and what policies it should change due to the pandemic to facilitate the transition towards meeting the net zero goal.
