For more than 50 years, UK Research and Innovation (UKRI), its councils and predecessors have worked to understand, tackle and mitigate the effects of climate change, and embed evidence in decision making and climate policy.
Today, the UK is at the forefront of a new, green industrial revolution. Research, innovation and partnership continue to underpin the UK’s commitment to:
- achieving a net zero economy by 2050
- respond to the challenges of climate change
- live more sustainably.
