The IoD are delighted to have partnered up with Planet Mark on the #ZeroCarbonTour to illustrate the phenomenal array of actions the business community is taking to address the climate crisis and take the net zero carbon message to communities around the world.
Starting on June 9, the Zero Carbon Tour launches in London with the unveiling of the 100% electric ‘Carbon Battle Bus’, before heading down to the Eden Project in Cornwall to coincide with the G7 Summit on June 14. The Tour will be culminating at COP26 in Glasgow in November where we aim to showcase the incredible sustainability initiatives gathered throughout the Tour.
The Tour is supporting the UN-backed Race to Zero campaign, the world’s largest alliance of actors committed to halving global emissions by 2030 and achieving net zero emissions by 2050 at the latest. It will highlight how businesses can set their own credible net zero carbon targets in line with The Race to Zero’s rigorous minimum criteria and how to implement effective plans to achieve them.
The physical stop-offs during the Tour will provide everything a business needs to know to go net zero through free-to-attend events, Net Zero Essentials workshops and networking opportunities, which will give participants the tools and knowledge to join Race to Zero with a robust net zero target and an action plan to support it.
Organisations can make their own net zero carbon commitment with us to officially join the Race to Zero as part of the Zero Carbon Tour pledge wall.
