11 September 2020

The Secretary of State has a duty under the Climate Change Act 2008 to ensure that the net UK carbon account for the year 2050 is at least 100% lower than the 1990 baseline. What does this mean? What are the legal implications? What changes are needed and how are they achieved?

Join Browne Jacobson’s Richard Barlow (Chair) and Ben Standing discussing the legal obligations of net zero and the practical options and techniques that are required; and Landmark Chambers’ David Elvin QC and James Maurici QC discussing biodiversity net gain under the Environment Bill (2020) and air quality issues in planning.
