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. For Net-Zero November, we’re picking up the pace and publishing a new episode each week. 

This latest episode features an in-depth interview with Velux’s VP for global communications, sustainability & public affairs, Ingrid Reumert. Velux is working with WWF to achieve lifetime carbon neutrality – it will offset 100% of its carbon emissions in the future and capture the equivalent of its historical carbon footprint using nature-based climate solutions by 2041.

Reumert discusses the work that went on behind the scenes to develop the target and its supporting plan, outlining how emissions reductions, offsetting and policy engagement fit into the company’s climate approach. 

She also provides insight on how the net-zero movement is reshaping her daily to-do list and advice for other sustainability professionals. 

In this episode, reference is made to the fact that Reumert will be speaking at edie’s Sustainability Leaders Forum in 2021. You can find more information about this event on its dedicated wwebsite.
