Our comments on 'net-zero clusters'

Tom Thackray, CBI Energy and Infrastructure Director, said:

“We warmly welcome the Government’s increased ambition to move energy intensive industries towards carbon neutrality.

“Businesses from across the economy recognise and support the introduction of a net-zero cluster target. This is a globally important issue, so it’s right that the Government will provide funding for information sharing and research and development for those sectors requiring more support to achieve this goal.

“We look forward to working with the Government to ensure all firms are supported in their efforts to reduce emissions and take action to mitigate the damaging impacts of climate change on society, the environment and the economy.”
