Climate change presents the largest single challenge for businesses and societies across the planet. Failure to act, and to act swiftly, effectively and decisively, is simply not an option.
The science is clear – the next decade is critical for action on climate change. It's more important than ever for governments and businesses to lock-in carbon reduction targets. The planet can’t wait.
Together we at O2 and the British Chambers of Commerce are on a mission to build a greener future. At O2, we have millions of connections across our network. We are a leader in sustainability within our sector. So the imperative is to use our expertise and insight to support UK firms to play their own role in reaching net zero. We want to help businesses and consumers cut carbon emissions with flexible working technology, smart meters, and a host of 5G-enabled solutions.
For the British Chambers of Commerce, we are using our Network of 53 Accredited Chambers in the UK and more than 70 affiliated bodies across the globe to advocate for the kinds of structures and incentives our members need, and to support our members to both play their part and thrive as they do so.
This Hub is one part of how we are both working to help make that change a reality in a way which helps business to thrive. It provides a mix of information, guides, resources, and tools to help all types of businesses in meeting their net zero targets.
Together we can help the UK to become not just the first major economy to set a net zero target, but also the first major economy to achieve it, and sow the seeds of a more prosperous and modern economy for generations to come.
