“Net Zero Week will offer all business leaders and their teams a progressive set of exclusive and free-to-attend webinars that explore the many practical facets of a net zero journey from biogas to transport, but also high-level inspiration and policy matters for businesses keen to progress the net zero journey.”

The UK is leading the world in rising to this challenge and can take pride in being a nation that is not just showing ambition but one which holds a record to match. We all have a stake in this, and I applaud the efforts of individuals, organisations and initiatives like Net Zero Week in highlighting the importance of this vital work.”
