Leading the way to COP26 – The UK’s journey to Net Zero


Leading the way to COP26 – The UK’s journey to Net Zero

Our latest survey on the Net Zero economy*, conducted in partnership with Drax, showed that 38% of respondents said they fully understand the term net zero and the implications for their business while 21% did not. Amid unprecedented challenges in the past twelve months, one third of firms do not consider net zero to be a priority and more than two-thirds have either never heard of COP or know the name only. However, appetite to become net zero is very high, with 88% saying they are actively taking at least one measure to reduce carbon emissions.

Leading the way to COP26 – the UK’s journey to Net Zero, a panel event delivered in partnership with Drax, enabled participants to:

Gain a deeper understanding of the term Net Zero and the impact it will have on their business.
Understand more about Cop26, what it means for their business and how they can get involved.
Hear a real-life case study from Drax, with their vision to be carbon negative by 2030, including the changes they’ve made and the hurdles they’ve faced.
Take away actions to bring them closer to realising their net zero ambitions and/or targets.
