To provide a forum for parliamentarians to engage with leading businesses and organisations that are working to enable the UK to meet its net-zero targets through implementation of hydrogen projects, and discuss policy options to support these.

Note: All-Party Parliamentary Groups (APPGs) are informal, cross-party groups formed by MPs and Members of the House of Lords who share a common interest in a particular policy area, region or country. APPGs have no official status within Parliament.
