There is much talk about how green investments could be a way to promote a post-COVID-19 economic recovery at the same time as achieving our climate policy goals. Professor Pollitt will explore exactly what the evidence is that green investments actually promote economic productivity and growth, and what the potential consequences of skewing the recovery towards green investments might be.

A recording of this session is available to watch on YouTube.
