One of the most insightful pieces I've created was this climate change piece and its impact on the UK economy by 2030. There is an interest globally about the impact of climate change and its effect not only on us, but also on the economy overall. By using a range of statistics and reported figures, I was able to design an infographic displaying this information in a flow-type image with the economic impact represented by a tablet or device and the various points shown as connected from this central icon.
Just some of the surprising statistics include the fact that by meeting carbon budgets we would see improved air quality which has a direct impact on overall health across the UK. In turn this would help reduce healthcare expenditure by saving £288 Million a year.
Another interesting find was that employment would be up by 190,000 extra jobs due to transitioning to a low-carbon economy, with households also better off by up to £565 by 2030, thanks to energy savings and lower running costs, as well as food price reductions and a subsequent increase in wages.
