Net-Zero November: edie’s bumper month of climate action content is underway

Incorporating exclusive COP28 coverage, high-level interviews, themed podcast episodes and a dedicated Net-Zero Action online event, edie’s Net-Zero November is back to help corporates turn decarbonisation ambitions into tangible actions.

Net-Zero November: edie’s bumper month of climate action content is underway

Now in its fifth year, Net-Zero November is edie’s themed month of editorial content and events dedicated to informing, inspiring and empowering sustainability and energy professionals on the road to a net-zero carbon future for business.

As Dubai gears up to host COP28 (30 November – 12 December) many businesses will be examining their current approaches to net-zero and waiting to see what global negotiations will deliver to shape climate action and respond to the energy crisis. As such, edie’s Net-Zero November is an entire month’s worth of content dedicated to empowering our audience to accelerate the net-zero revolution while delivering a just and green economic rebound.

This year’s programme takes an even deeper dive into achieving net-zero, covering the practicalities of reducing emissions; exploring the burgeoning trend of Net-Zero Transition Plans; and looking at best practice case studies of corporates who are forging ahead with their net-zero plans.
