The Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, articulated that a fundamental aim of the current government is turn the UK into the world’s number one centre for green technology and finance. The UK has taken an historic lead, of sorts, in trying to achieve net zero by 2050: The UK was the first country to make achieving net zero by 2050 a legal obligation, and the UK also played a significant role in helping to secure the Paris Agreement.
The Ten Point Plan, proposed by the government towards tackling net zero emissions, sets out the key targets and goals that must be achieved in order for the country to effectively reach the target by 2050. The plan is expected to use £12 billion of government investment in conjunction with potentially 3 times as much from the private sector. The Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy actually puts this figure (private investment) at an estimated £42 billion by 2030.
Point 1: Advancing offshore wind
Point 2: Driving the growth of low carbon hydrogen
Point 3: Delivering new and advanced nuclear power
Point 4: Accelerating the shift to zero emission vehicles
Point 5: Green public transport, cycling and walking
Point 6: ‘Jet Zero’ and green ships
Point 7: Greener Buildings
Point 8: Investing in carbon capture, usage and storage
Point 9: Protecting our natural environment
Point 10: Green finance and innovation
Critics argue that the focus on investing in new nuclear power is entirely misguided. Friends of the Earth, for example, state that the argument about needing nuclear power for when the wind isn’t blowing “doesn’t hold water now that we options such as hydrogen and batteries.” However, Friends of the Earth do concede that in some areas the government has delivered, namely the decision to ban diesel and petrol cars by 2030 and the £1 billion investment in insulating homes and buildings.
Business Green argue that, although there are successes to speak of, in comparison to Germany’s earmarked €7bn for hydrogen projects, the UK’s £500m is pale in comparison. They also point out the £1bn allocated for CCS is the same as what was promised a decade ago, and the £20m for green maritime technology is merely a drop in the ocean.
Ultimately, however, Greenpeace stated that the measures marked a significant step forward for tackling the climate emergency, “This landmark announcement signals the end of the road for polluting cards and vans a historic turning point on climate action.”

The Carryway operation was run very professionally and smoothly and to a very high standard. Their knowledge and attention to detail with the complicated planning and logistics involved were exceptional; they were a pleasure to deal with and I can highly recommend their services.
It has been a delight to deal with Carryway, who were our Official Golf Buggy Supplier for The 2019 Solheim Cup. They combine efficient logistics with a professional approach to every aspect of delivery, and the equipment our event benefited from was both functional and stylish. A big thank you to a wonderful Partner.
The Carryway buggy was a lifesaver – and that’s no exaggeration! We were racing in the Aston Martin Le Mans Festival, which is a 45 mins support race just before the start for the big 24hr race. Our garages were about 2km away so getting all our gear to/from the pitlane for the race was made so simple because of the buggy! And it would have taken (the team) ages to get there and back! We are enormously proud of our new buggy and the livery made for it. It helps us stand out and helps raise our profile, not to mention being an essential team donkey.”
Thank you Carryway for supplying the buggy for us at Chatsworth this year. All went well and no issues at all – it was a definite improvement on the equipment supplied last year by a different company. Happy to use you again for next year .
Thank you for the excellent customer service that we recently received from Hugh Healy, Carryway Support. Hugh was very thorough and had excellent communications with us regarding our buggy fleet at The Westerwood Resort – nothing was too difficult for him.
Our open day event is a very important day for us, and it makes life much easier to have a relationship with a company (Carryway) that we can rely on each year.
Carryway are always a pleasure to deal with and their drivers are always friendly and professional. It takes a little bit of worry out of my job knowing that I can rely on your good service.
Many thanks to the team, especially Adam who was friendly, helpful and professional.
It is a pleasure to work with Carryway, the service and support they provide has been first class. We originally signed up for 14 brand new buggies for one year to sample working with the company.
We were pleased with the service and the product provided and have since signed up for the next few seasons and hopefully with many more to come after that.
