Roadshows, pledges and innovations: edie’s Net-Zero November enters final week
edie's month of net-zero content moves into its final week, meaning businesses have more time to upload new pledges and gain insight and inspiration from the themed content being published this week.
Following on from the UK Government’s world-leading net-zero carbon commitment, Net-Zero November has offered edie readers an array of net-zero-themed exclusive interviews, downloadable guides, reader blogs, live events, webinars and podcasts, along with a brand-new editorial series.
The month has sparked new business ideas and actions through edie’s award-winning campaign, Mission Possible. Specifically, edie readers are encouraged to submit new net-zero themed commitments on behalf of their organisations on the Mission Possible Pledge Wall.
In the final week, edie will be publishing a special innovation round-up of potentially transformative low-carbon technologies, more exclusive interviews and blogs with businesses and organisations gearing up for the net-zero challenge and publishing a brand-new “roadshow series” looking at how cities and councils are responding to the climate emergency with net-zero plans.
