Discover how innovation can help industry meet the Net Zero challenge, through key note speakers, expert panel discussions and case studies

About this event

The UK's Net Zero target means a step-change in the ambition to decarbonise industry. In 2018, industry represented 16% of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions, being the third largest emitter after energy production and transport.

Accelerating the deployment of innovative technologies will help cut carbon emissions, while maintaining a competitive and thriving sector. We have a clear destination, now let’s plot the journey.

  • Understand the scope of the Net Zero challenge and the urgency for industry to meet it, with key note speakers such as Dr. Mark Taylor, Deputy Director Energy Innovation at BEIS and Julia King, Baroness Brown of Cambridge and Chair of the Carbon Trust.
  • Hear from a panel of industry leaders on how adopting innovative technologies can bring significant carbon and cost savings to businesses.
  • Find out how industrial companies are overcoming the challenges faced when setting their own decarbonisation targets.
