DWF comments on Boris Johnson's 10-point plan for Net Zero
17 November 2020
Darren Walsh, Head of Power at global legal business, DWF, responds to the Prime Minister's announcement on his 10 Point Plan. He said:
"We are encouraged by Boris Johnson's 10 Point Plan announced [this evening]. Many of our businesses are focused on striving to meet and exceed our net zero carbon commitments by 2050 and sooner; wherever possible. Having a clear strategy focused on the development of the nascent hydrogen market with a clear emphasis on green hydrogen will be key to this. Hydrogen is by no means the panacea to net zero carbon, but it must play a key part in the UK's strategy with a focus on addressing domestic and commercial sources of heating; as well as the transport sector. Businesses must now use this Plan set out by the Government to search out innovative solutions to go green."
DWF, the global provider of integrated legal and business services, has advised the shareholders and management of UK-based Workdry International Limited on its sale to Arcus, an independent fund manager investing in European infrastructure assets.
On 7 September, in a speech delivered by FCA Executive Director of Markets, Sarah Pritchard, at the FCA's Financal Crime Summit, she detailed the FCA's evolving strategy for combating Financial Crime, placing more emphasis on the role of 'first responders in the fight against financial criminals'.
