Mission Net Zero: delivering positive climate action

Nov 26, 2020 | Staff

The 2019 Environment Bill has focused minds on the ambition for ‘Net Zero’ carbon reduction that covers all our direct and indirect emissions. The Net Zero challenge is complex and requires fundamental adaptation but this is an imperative that no individual or industry can afford to ignore.

On 29th October 2020 we held the Mission Net Zero webinar in partnership with Gloucester Cathedral as part of the Gaia art installation and ‘Hope for Creation’ event series. The business-focused session included expert speakers from four organisations sharing their delivery plans for Mission Net Zero as part of the wider coronavirus adaptation effort towards a green recovery and more ambitious decarbonisation. The speakers were:

  • Interface – Becky Gordon, UK & Ireland Sustainability Manager.  The presentation can be viewed here.
  • Forest Green Rovers – Dr Gary Thomas, Sustainability Lead, Ecotricity.  The presentation can be viewed here.
  • Gloucester Cathedral – Anne Cranston, Head of Projects. The presentation can be viewed here.
  • University of Gloucestershire – Dr Jon Furley, Sustainability Operations Manager. The presentation can be viewed here.

Supported by RCE Severn – our Regional Centre of Expertise in Sustainability Education for collaboration in the Severn region, based at University of Gloucestershire.

The webinar was part of Gloucester Cathedral’s Hope for Creation programme.
