About this Event
The future of work review commissioned May 2022, led by Matt Warman MP, confronts key strategic, policy, and economic issues. The primary focus of the review is the labour market, but of course policy in this area overlaps with many other social, cultural, and economic issues. Crucially, all possible futures will involve a clear position on and engagement with sustainability, specifically emerging expectations for businesses to move towards carbon zero. It is however notoriously difficult to formulate policy in this area that government, voters, and business leaders all find convincing or acceptable. So what to do? Key questions this event will address include:
- Why is carbon zero so central to the future of work and business?
- What futures does automation suggest? And are they socially and economically sustainable?
- What are the barriers to, and dangers of, carbon zero for business?
- What policy levers are available to government? And how acceptable will they be to business leaders in this country and globally?
