Sunak’s new approach to net zero: Key details and reactions
Billed as the start of a series of announcements of long-term decisions designed to deliver change in the UK, Sunak said it was not right to impose the significant costs of climate transition on people already facing price pressures. While the prime minister reaffirmed the government’s commitment to reach net zero by 2050, stakeholders questioned whether the changes would make it harder for the UK to hit that target while others raised concerns about the impact on investment from shifting deadlines.
The rapid development of artificial intelligence promises to bring rewards to a wide range of sectors, from better healthcare to cleaner transport and more efficient manufacturing. But it also presents policymakers across the world with a challenge to ensure the technology flourishes in a safe and predictable way. European Union lawmakers are working to pass the world’s first comprehensive AI law, the AI Act, which promises to regulate the technology according to the risks its applications pose. There is broad agreement across the world on the risks the technology poses and the need to move quickly.

What our clients say:
“We have been using Dods EU for a few years now and have just added UK to our Package as it has become a vital tool to help us stay on top of the political agenda on a daily basis. Compared to other similar services we used before, Dods provides a quality service with a tailor made approach, not to mention the hands-on client service that really sets Dods apart.

“After using Dods Monitoring for nearly two years now, I can safely say that the whole team at GIE could not do without the invaluable support the service provides. Whether working in public affairs or communications, the Briefings and tailor-made research (e.g. stakeholder mapping, an updated Energy Attaches list, etc.) have become real time savers. We warmly recommend the service and have actually just renewed for another two years!”
