Building a UK economy for people, planet, and prosperity in an uncertain world

This online event will explore how we build economies that work for people, the planet and prosperity as part of the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.  This will mean transforming economies so that they align with net zero targets, but also work to tackle wider priorities such as creating sustainable well-paid jobs, and ensuring the affordability of products and services.  

The event will draw in voices from key experts and will explore the key challenges for delivery, as well as the role that research and analysis can play in supporting decision makers to understand the implications and trade-offs of different actions.   

Who should attend?

The event is aimed at a range of stakeholders from government, industry and wider civil society organisations with an interest in energy and climate, economic and sustainability policy. 

Benefits of attending

The event will explore how research and analysis can be used to inform decision making around how we transform our economies to meet net zero emissions along with a range of other objectives. Delegates will hear from leading experts around how analysis can be used to understand trade-offs, opportunities and challenges associated with different actions, and how different social and economic priorities can be met.
