Following on from the UK Government’s world-leading net-zero carbon commitment, edie’s new spinoff podcast series, Net-Zero Business, hears from the trendsetters and trailblazers of responsible businesses.

Since the UK Government set it’s 2050 net-zero target into law, more and more businesses are attempting to get ahead of the political curve by strengthening carbon and energy strategies and pledging to become net-zero businesses well before the 2050 deadline.

The Net-Zero Business podcast is a monthly digest of shorter episodes, each featuring an in-depth interview with a sustainability lead at a business that has set a net-zero target recently. 

In the latest episode, held as part of Net-Zero November, the London School of Economics and Political Science’s (LSE) head of sustainability Charles Joly explains how the university will achieve carbon neutrality for the 2020-2021 academic year and net-zero before 2050. 

LSE has already reduced its direct operations by 38% since 2005, but action will need to be accelerated to meet the new commitments, and offsetting will need to come into play. 

Joly provides behind-the-scenes insight into the development and implementation of the university’s climate plans and provides learnings on engaging staff, students and other key stakeholders.
