The Baseline Report identified three key strategic themes for study: reaching net zero, adapting to climate change and reducing environmental impacts, and supporting levelling up across regions. It also identified six national systems to be considered: digital, energy, flood resilience, water and wastewater, waste, and transport. The first phase of the work is a Call for Evidence, which will remain open until 4 February 2022.
The Baseline and Assessment reports are key to helping steer the UK Government into making the right investment decisions: around 80% of the recommendations in the 1st NIC Assessment Report were accepted by Government. It is therefore important that we understand the factors around the review and make the voice of business known in any evidential material. This webinar will offer the opportunity to hear from the NIC and to discuss the major imperatives and impediments with representatives from key businesses.
