How can industrial policy boost UK green industry?

The Business and Trade Committee hears from experts and representatives of firms producing essential green technologies on industrial policy for the net zero transition.

MPs on the Committee seek to find out which measures could build competitiveness in green industries such as offshore wind, heat pumps and home retrofitting, and the hurdles it faces in doing so.
