ECIU talks to... Andrea Leadsom MP

Andrea Leadsom MP on net zero ambitions, and what needs to happen post-Cop26 in our new interview series.

By Tricia Curmi

Dame Andrea Leadsom has called for the Government to set hard deadlines on the road to net zero to allow British businesses to get on the front foot.

The MP for South Northamptonshire and ECIU Advisory Board member spoke to ECIU in her constituency at the Silverstone Circuit, where F1 itself is planning to have net zero championships by 2030. In the first interview of the ECIU Talks... series, Dame Andrea said that policy certainty and clear deadlines - such as the phase-out date for internal combustion engines - would drive business investment and innovation.
