British Geological Survey and Climate change
In 2020 the UK Prime Minister announced a plan for a ‘green industrial revolution’. Set out in a Ten Point Plan and a new Energy White Paper, the Government aims to deliver sustainable growth and a net-zero carbon emission economy by 2050.
The challenges and opportunities presented by this ambition are considerable. They will impact on all sectors of our economy, and on the lives and livelihoods of all UK citizens.
British Geological Survey has a vital role to play, from informing the location of offshore wind farms, to understanding the hazards associated with a changing climate, such as droughts and floods, and the security of water resources for all.
