Climate Change and Energy Network
Many of us have been working hard to understand net-zero and how our organisations can best transition.
Our pledge-based sector scheme (www.pledgetonetzero.org) with the Society for the Environment and industry partners already has more than 40 signatories. The approach is designed for inclusive participation; in April, IEMA members Natalie Cropp, Joe Hague and Ryan Burrows presented three science-based reduction approaches for their own very different organisations, and afterwards answered an extensive list of questions. Members can access this Q&A document and the full webinar on the IEMA Watch Again pages (www.iema.net/resources).
Despite COVID-19, professional commitment to the climate emergency continues, with leading webinars and blogs on topics such as green power accounting, carbon neutrality and critical climate challenges such as cooling and adaptation. These can be found at www.iema.net/resources/blog
Finally, look out for our Climate Change miniseries in late June, kicking off with Committee on Climate Change CEO Chris Stark. Across the series, we will introduce new guidance on climate risk and address opportunities in areas ranging from low-carbon and renewables to climate change communication, with presenters from BAFTA, Futerra and the BBC.
Thank you to all members and guests supporting our programme.
Nick Blyth, FIEMA, IEMA policy lead
