Joseph Rowntree Foundation event - How can we fairly and effectively meet our climate change targets?

20 Feb 2013 9:26 am

 Wednesday 13th March 2013, No 11 Cavendish Square (home of The Kings Fund), London, W1G 0AN

This event will launch two new JRF research reports Distribution of carbon emissions in the UK: Implications for domestic energy policy and Designing Carbon Taxation to Protect Low-Income Households which have been produced as part of the JRF Climate change and social justice programme. This event will be chaired by Fiona Harvey (Environment Journalist at the Guardian) and the Rt Hon Lord Deben PC (Chair of the Committee on Climate Change) will talk about issues of fairness in tackling climate change. The event will explore 1) how existing carbon reduction policies targeted at domestic energy use affect different households and how fair and effective these policies are; 2) how future carbon reduction policies, including carbon taxation, can be developed in a way which protects low-income households; and 3) how fuel poverty and carbon reduction policy agendas could be brought together more effectively. The event will also feature a number of expert led workshops and a panel discussion on why fairness matters and what needs to be done to ensure this is considered in responding to climate change. The event is free of charge - please contact Michelle Atkins on 01904 615905 or michelle.atkins@jrf.org.uk to register.
