‘Government policy for climate action’
This autumn and winter, we are inviting some of the UK’s most eminent experts working in climate science to the IMAX theatre.
Join us as we strengthen our understanding of the climate emergency and the impacts of changes to society. Dive deep into potential solutions using policy and science and join the discussion by posing your climate questions.
Robust government policy is essential in mitigating climate change and achieving net zero in an already-warming climate.
Chris Stark discusses the work his team do to advise governments on climate science and suitable targets, the challenges of balancing environmental impact with economic growth and what our governments really need to do to make a swift and significant difference.
About the speaker:
Chris Stark is the Chief Executive of the UK Climate Change Committee (CCC). The CCC independently advises the UK and devolved governments in emissions targets and reports to parliament on emission reduction progress, as well as how to prepare for the effects of climate change. Previously Chris was the Director of Energy and Climate Change in the Scottish Government, leading the development of Scotland’s approach to emissions reduction and the accompanying energy system transition.
