In response to the Government’s announcement about delays to net zero targets, including the delay on a ban on new petrol and diesel cars from 2030 to 2035, and a push back on the transition from gas boilers to heat pumps to 2035, Andrew Baldwin, Head of Policy and Public Affairs at Association for Project Management (APM), said: “Major projects related to achieving net zero targets need long-term stability and consistency from government to succeed. Today’s announcements on net zero policy changes and delays could lead to spiralling costs, reduced benefits and, ultimately, to failure – and we simply cannot afford to fail at delivering something as important as net zero.

“The Government’s net zero strategy requires the delivery of a huge range of projects at pace over the next decade if targets are to be achieved. Good project outcomes require the right conditions for success, and as the chartered body for the project profession, we urge the Government to not lose the momentum on the fight against climate change.”
