Pledge to Net Zero initiative launched
As we strive to realise the UK’s commitment to bring all greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2050, IEMA has joined other environmental experts to launch the Pledge to Net Zero initiative.
“The transition to net zero carbon emissions is the defining challenge of our time,” said Martin Baxter, IEMA’s chief policy advisor. “We are fully supportive of the environmental services sector pledging credible emissions reductions which align with the urgency of addressing thxe climate and environmental emergency.”
Pledge to Net Zero is the first industry commitment in the UK developed for the environmental services sector. It aims to make the sector a leader when it comes to taking action on climate change. IEMA has created this initiative together with the Society for the Environment, the Association for Consultancy and Engineering, and the Environmental Industries Commission, as well as leading environmental consultancies WSP and AECOM.
By signing the Net Zero Pledge, organisations are setting a precedent for more people to recognise the importance of this target. Demonstrating the power of partnership will allow us to transform the world to sustainability.
