Analysis of the UK Net Zero Ecosystem

The national, regional and sector impacts of net zero


The transition to net zero greenhouse gas emissions will be the growth story of the decade, with structural shifts both in the economy and society. In addition to protecting the planet we share, net zero presents opportunities for businesses, government, and local authorities.

In partnership with CBI Economics, we have produced a report which provides insight into the emergence and growth of business activity in green and low-carbon sectors.

To shed light on the net zero ecosystem, this report maps the impacts and activities of key sectors within the whole UK net zero economy. This includes economic modelling at the national, regional and sector levels, as well as introducing a unique scorecard methodology which can evaluate the transition of 374 local authorities.

What’s included?

The report contains key insights for the sector including:

  • Huge national and export opportunity
  • 16 Net Zero sectors mapped
  • £1.1bn investment raised
  • Local authority scorecard
  • View on the ‘Just transition’
  • Jobs outlook
  • Private consultation
