Creating the Business Blueprint for Net Zero

This short survey from npower Business Solutions is to gather the views of businesses on the support they would like to see from government to help drive the net zero agenda following the Chancellor's recent summer statement.

In July 2019, the UK government legislated to hit net zero carbon emissions by 2050 and in November 2019, The Treasury announced its ‘Net Zero Review’ which will primarily look at how the transition will be funded, including the contributions expected from businesses. 

It is important that businesses put forward their views on what they would like to see from both the Net Zero Review and wider government support to help their carbon reduction ambitions. 

Many thanks for taking part!
