Progress beyond Mission Zero Coalition

About PPP Climate & Mission Zero Coalition

PPP Climate is a part of the UK events and public-private sector convening organisation, Public Policy Projects (PPP).  

In March 2023, PPP launched Mission Zero Coalition as a separate company to build momentum from the Mission Zero report, authored and led by the former Energy and Clean Growth Minister, The Rt Hon Chris Skidmore OBE MP.  The Coalition provided an independent platform for exchanging insights, experiences and ideas on Net Zero policy development for the UK. 

July 2024 marked both five years since the UK signed its net zero commitment into law and the conclusion of the intended body of work of Mission Zero Coalition.   

The work of the Coalition now continues as part of the wider climate portfolio covered by PPP Climate.  

PPP Climate specialises in bringing together senior leaders and practitioners in the public and private sectors to find realistic solutions to the most pressing issues relating to climate change.  

As an independent ‘broker’ of effective public-private sector collaboration, we help businesses to grow their profile in the local and national public sectors, and in the international diplomat community. 

Though our round tables, live events and reports we support local authorities, national government, and third party organisations with practical recommendations on implementing policy to drive positive climate change outcomes for local populations.

Solar panels and wind farm - This Mission Zero report recommended ten, 10-year missions that are integral to achieving net zero by 2025, and that should be committed to by the UK government to deliver on emissions reduction targets.

Delivering on UK Net Zero

The UK government’s target of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 100% by 2050 compared with 1990 levels was made legally binding in June 2019 by the Climate Change Act 2008 (2050 Target Amendment) Order 2019. In 2021, the government published its Net Zero Strategy, setting a pathway to net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.  

The Coalition brings together businesses, industry bodies and key stakeholders within ‘Mission Zero Networks’

In January 2022, a case was submitted to the High Court against the UK Government by ClientEarth due to the failings of the Net Zero Strategy that meant the UK Government had breached its legal duties under the 2008 Climate Change Act. Together with Friends of the Earth and Good Law Project, ClientEarth presented claims at a hearing, which led to the High Court ruling in July 2022 that the plans set out in the strategy did not show how the UK’s legally binding carbon budgets will be met.  

In September 2022, the government commissioned former Energy and Clean Growth Minister, The Rt Hon Chris Skidmore OBE MP, who also signed the Net Zero target into law, to lead an independent review into the government’s approach to Net Zero. The intention was to better understand the most affordable and efficient Net Zero Pathway and its impact on the UK public and economy.

This Mission Zero report recommended ten 10-year missions that are integral to achieving Net Zero by 2025 that should be committed to by the UK government to deliver on emissions reduction targets.
