The Net-Zero Business Podcast: Examining the National Trust’s 2030 net-zero strategy
In response to the accelerated pace at which corporates are examining and setting net-zero targets to help alleviate the climate crisis, edie has launched a new spin-off of the Sustainable Business Covered podcast. First up on the Net-Zero Business podcast is an exclusive interview with the National Trust.
Following on from the UK Government’s world-leading net-zero carbon commitment, edie’s new spinoff podcast series, Net-Zero Business, will hear 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 30-minute digest that publishes monthly. It features an in-depth 15-20-minute interview with a sustainability lead at a business that has set a net-zero target in the last three months.
For the first episode, edie’s senior reporter Sarah George interviews the National Trust’s head of environmental practices Lizzy Carlyle to get under the skin of the Trust’s plan to become net-zero carbon by 2030, which features one of the UK's biggest forest expansion projects.
Sarah also rounds up some key net-zero announcements that have taken place this week, including a new report revealing that 49% of the world’s GDP is now covered by an intended or actual net-zero target, FIFA’s plan to deliver a carbon-neutral World Cup in Qatar in 2022; and both Mitie’s and Sir Robert McAlpine’s new net-zero announcements.
