edie provides post-COP business guidance with Net-Zero November summary report
edie has published a new report for businesses looking to accelerate efforts to reach net-zero emissions, providing guidance, insight and key policy recaps on what was announced at COP27 and across the month of November.
Incorporating exclusive COP27 coverage, high-level interviews, themed podcast episodes and a dedicated Net-Zero Action online event, edie’s Net-Zero November campaign saw us deliver up a bumper month of content designed to help businesses raise their sustainability ambitions and accelerate climate action.
To summarise all the key developments, announcements and initiatives, as well as capturing the key messages of thought leaders, edie has partnered with IES to create a post-COP business report on how net-zero will evolve moving forward.
This report is designed to summarise all the key announcements and discussion points from Net-Zero November; and to act as a blueprint for business leadership as we begin to move from ambition into action. A special thanks must go to all of the interviewees, bloggers, speakers, partners and supporters who made edie’s Net-Zero November and COP27 coverage such a resounding success.
From the key news stories, to the soundbites from world leaders and climate experts, this report covers all net-zero facets from green policy to innovation, to help businesses turn ambitions and targets into action and progress.
The report features insight from Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy’s (BEIS) net-zero business engagement lead Dan Altman who spoke exclusively at edie’s SPARK event last month.
Altman said: “I think the major theme coming out of this is how net-zero and [responding to] the energy crisis go hand-in-hand. In order for many businesses to address net-zero, they first need to address that. If a business can reduce its energy use, this will benefit its finances and emissions [footprint]. With the dramatic rise in energy prices, many businesses are struggling to stay afloat – let alone having time to have the resource to dedicate to net-zero.
It also features an industry viewpoint from IES’s global sales director Richard Fletcher who states: “As we approach the end of a challenging year on many fronts, it is understandable that some businesses may feel their decarbonisation efforts have been forced to take a back seat of late. Energy costs and resilience of supply have risen to the top of the agenda. However, edie’s Net-Zero November campaign, and a reaffirmed commitment to 1.5C at COP27, have brought net-zero sharply back into focus.”
