In 2019, the UK made a legally binding pledge to reach net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.
The Ten Point Plan is the UK government’s latest strategy for stimulating a green industrial revolution and working towards the goal of net-zero. It plans to bring together policy and investment, both public and private, to take advantage of a variety of low carbon technologies, while providing green jobs and securing economic growth.
As the name suggests, there are ten aspects to this plan.
1. Advancing Offshore Wind
2. Driving the Growth of Low Carbon Hydrogen
3. Delivering New and Advanced Nuclear Power
4. Accelerating the Shift to Zero-Emission Vehicles
5. Green Public Transport, Cycling and Walking
6. Jet Zero and Green Ships
7. Greener Buildings
8. Investing in Carbon Capture, Usage and Storage
9. Protecting Our Natural Environment
10. Green Finance and Innovation
