“As a sector that is helping to support thousands of companies to transition to a more sustainable Net Zero future through specialist advice and world class expertise, we welcome the announcement of a new Department for Energy Security and Net Zero. Delivering on a Net Zero economy will bring tremendous opportunities for the UK including investment, new skills and jobs, environmental returns, energy security and societal benefits and we hope that this new department will ensure a laser focus from government on delivering the UK’s Net Zero future.
“We welcome the creation of a new combined Department of Business and Trade to help drive the UK’s growth agenda. With the UK management consultancy sector growing by 25 per cent in 2022 and a trebling of overseas trade being witnessed in recent years, we look forward to working with Kemi Badenoch MP, the new Secretary of State for Business and Trade, in driving forward new growth and jobs in this crucial area of the UK’s economy.”
