Prime Minister, Rishi Sunak today outlined new plans to backtrack on many of the government’s most ambitious net zero polices, in order to create a key dividing line with Labour before the next election.
Tom Jones, CEO of the Aluminium Federation (ALFED) explained, “The announcement from the Prime Minister is a key one. There are potentially significant implications for the UK aluminium industry. Policy and strategy consistency is vital, so that the sector can plan and adapt accordingly. As such, we’ll keep a close eye on progress to ensure we’re acting with the best interests of our members.
“ALFED released an important net zero report in September last year that outlined existing and future requirements, based on the information available at the time. The revision to the government’s plans means we will need to review what it means for the industry and our own vision.”
