LGC Net Zero Webinar: Net Zero in a cost-of-living crisis

14 June 2023 Online | Free to Attend

Our second webinar in this year's series tackles the cost of living crisis: what impact is this having on councils' ability to meet their net zero goals, and will there be a negative knock-on from people needing to save money? Join LGC’s deputy editor Martin George and a panel of experts to discuss the challenges on the horizon.

In what has been dubbed the age of the permacrisis, climate change is only one of many issues competing for attention. And though, left unchecked, its impact on humanity will be devastating, other issues such as energy bills and the cost of living crisis can seem more pressing in the present moment. However, with crisis comes the potential for change and the transition to net zero offers opportunities which could not only help ease current pressures on household finances but represent an opportunity to make the UK more resilient to future shocks.

Join us for this free webinar as part of the LGC Net Zero series on 14 June to hear about immediate strategic actions local government can take and debate:

  • How can councils ensure actions to achieve net zero remain a priority?
  • Are there any quick wins?
  • What approaches can local government take to stimulate the green economy and enable growth?
  • How can councils keep the community on side?
  • How can net zero considerations be embedded in decision making?
