Aligning the UK’s economic goals with environmental sustainability

Dr Matthew Agarwala delivers an oral statement to the Environmental Audit Committee.

On 9 February 2022, Dr Matthew Agarwala, Project Leader: The Wealth Economy, was one of two witnesses at a session held by the Environmental Audit Commission on Aligning the UK’s economic goals with environmental sustainability.

He discussed the Wealth Economy team’s research on how to develop economic statistics and measurements that are fit for guiding policy through the challenges we face in the 21st century.

“Economic measures should reflect our social infrastructure, our natural environment and the level of inequality and how that plays through the rest of the economy.”
