The Zero Carbon Britain Hub and Innovation Lab helps turn climate and biodiversity emergency declarations into action. With technical solutions readily available, the momentum is building in our towns and cities to reach net zero as quickly as possible.
We provide councils, communities and other organisations with the knowledge, confidence and skills to transform complex economic, social and political systems and achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2040. We do this through a range of training courses, events, detailed research reports, innovation lab processes and a free online resource hub. We integrate our learning across these activities to continually enhance them and share the best available information with and between those we’re working with.
