A strategy has been published by the Government, setting out how the UK will deliver on its climate pledges by 2050.

The UK Government has this week published its Net Zero Strategy, promising to secure 440,000 green jobs, unlocking £90 billion in investment in 2030 and reducing the nation’s carbon emissions to zero by 2050.

UK Net Zero Strategy was published to build on Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s 10 Point Plan and sets out an economy-wide plan for how businesses and consumers will be supported to make the transition to clean energy.

An extra £350 million will support the electrification of UK vehicles. Another £620 million will support targeted electrical vehicle grants and infrastructure.

The Government also promised an additional £500 million contributing to innovation projects “to develop the green technologies of the future, bringing the total funding for net zero research and innovation to at least £1.5 billion. This will support the most pioneering ideas and technologies to decarbonise our homes, industries, land and power.”

Business and Energy Secretary Kwasi Kwarteng said: "Today’s plan will not only unlock billions of pounds of investment to boost the UK’s competitive advantage in green technologies, but will create thousands of jobs in new, future-proof industries – clearly demonstrating that going green and economic growth go hand in hand."
