COURSE: Setting a Net Zero Target
Event Description

Organizations are setting their own climate commitments and/or ‘net zero targets’ to embrace the upcoming change as the UK aims to reach net zero emissions by 2050. To support members on their journey towards net zero, this workshop will provide insights to help navigate relevant third-party commitments.

The workshop will give an overview of UKGBC’s Climate Commitment Platform and organisations who have already made ambitious commitments. There is a need for built environment organisations to better understand what Climate Commitments are most relevant for them, the commercial implications and how to set effective net zero strategies. Hearing from three featured organisations spanning the built environment value chain, we will be exploring the following questions:

  1. What is a ‘net zero target’?  
  2. What are the differences between relevant third-party commitments? 
  3. What are the decision-making processes behind setting internal climate commitments? 
  4. How are organisations beginning to work towards their commitments? 
  5. What are the key actions needed by the industry over the next decade? 

There will be a practical workshop session to understand how the learnings can be applied to your organisation.
