Over 85% of UK local authorities have now declared a climate emergency and committed to enacting plans to tackle the climate crisis within their jurisdictions. In June, the Minister for COP26, Alok Sharma, urged cities and regions to 'unite behind a green global recovery' and join the UNFCCC's Race to Zero campaign ahead of the COP26 Climate Summit in November 2021.
But what does net zero mean for cities and regions?
Join us for the first in our webinar series on Getting to net zero for cities and regions during London Climate Action Week Virtual, where we will explore the emerging definition of net zero as it relates to cities and regions, and discuss how climate action plans can be shaped to ensure they are aligned to net zero targets.
This webinar is for representatives of local authorities and public sector bodies looking to deliver robust and measurable net zero carbon strategies.
In this webinar, our experts will discuss:
- Setting net zero and science-based targets
- Defining net zero transition pathways for cities and regions
- The role of carbon offsetting and greenhouse gas removals
Our Cities and Regions experts will draw on their almost two decades of experience of working with public sector organisations around the world, helping raise their ambition on climate action and develop and implement net zero action plans. There will be the opportunity for you to submit your questions to our experts during an interactive Q&A.
Please note this webinar is for relevant stakeholders only. We reserve the right to decline registrants.
This event is an official partner event for London Climate Action Week Digital.
