JOIN US IN
Macdonald Holyrood Hotel
81 Holyrood Road
Edinburgh, Scotland EH8 8AU
Hear from two internationally renowned economists on how to generate the scale of investment needed to deliver the Government’s ambitious plans to decarbonize Scotland and reinvigorate its productive economy.
There is growing consensus that it’s time for a Just Transition, moving to a modern low-carbon economy in ways which protect workers’ livelihoods, create a new industrial base and deliver a fairer Scotland, in order to tackle climate change and rebalance the economy. This will depend on rapid large-scale investment in many sectors of the economy and the announcement of plans to create a Scottish National Investment Bank signals that the Scottish Government is thinking seriously about this.
This event will hear about the ways in which national investment banks can help transform the direction of economic development and how Scotland might use all the tools at its disposal for this urgent mission
