Launch - Green Recovery: A Blueprint for a Green Future

Cambridge Zero was pleased to announce the launch of the “Green Recovery: A Blueprint for a Green Future” report this month at the Cambridge Zero Climate Change Festival 2020 . The report is an ambitious multidisciplinary report from the Cambridge Zero Policy Forum on how we can ensure a green recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic

The Forum is a collaboration between Cambridge Zero and the Centre for Science and Policy, bringing together over 80 senior academics from across the University of Cambridge to help tackle the policy challenges posed by the transition to a net-zero society.


The COVID-19 pandemic has already wreaked an immense toll on lives, livelihoods, and on the global economy. The UK can emerge stronger and more resilient, but to do so we must also face head-on the triple challenge of responding to the threats posed by growing social inequality, the destruction of nature, and climate change. How we choose to prioritise an economic and societal recovery will dramatically affect the outcomes of both for future generations. In this ambitious new report, The Cambridge Zero Policy Forum has brought together ideas from senior academics across the University of Cambridge to present a multidisciplinary perspective and series of recommendations for policymakers and industry.
