2021 is one of the most significant years to implement net zero strategies and energy efficiency projects in your organisation.
Review and learn how professionals across diverse industry sectors are meeting their challenges to lower their carbon emissions, reduce their energy consumption, and save money too.
Grapple with the Net Zero agenda, low carbon and energy management strategies in a meaningful way with more than 100 leading practitioners and experts; over 50 seminars across 4 topical theatres.
2021 speakers include:

Here are 5 top Net Zero strategies to be covered at EMEX 2021:
1. Building your Net Zero delivery plan
The rush to achieve Net Zero is not a one-size-fits all journey. Identifying what elements need to be considered to defining design a Net Zero carbon pledge and developing the most suitable implementation strategies is very specific to each organisation.
*** Decarbonising your operations (Scope 1 & 2 carbon emissions)
Scope 1 covers direct emissions from owned or controlled sources. Scope 2 covers indirect emissions from the generation of purchased electricity, steam, heating and cooling consumed. It is increasingly important for our community to stay informed about new technologies and share best practices learned across many sectors so that professionals can focus time and resources on proven solutions.
- Lloyds Banking Group’s journey to Net Zero carbon operation
- Inside Smurfit Kappa’s Net Zero journey
- Tackling scope 1 & 2 carbon emissions in manufacturing sectors
- The Army’s preparations in the race to Net Zero
- Industrial cecarbonisation & transformational path to net zero
- Net Zero for emergency services
*** Decarbonising your supply chain (Scope 3 carbon emissions)
Scope 3 emissions, which include those outside of your organisation’s direct operations, represent a significant proportion of an organisation’s carbon footprint. In Food and Drink, the UK’s largest manufacturing sector, over 90% of companies’ carbon emissions come from the supply chains.
How to track/measure carbon emissions in your supply chain? How to engage with suppliers at each stage of the value chain to drive down emissions beyond their own operations and to deliver the UK’s Net Zero target? How can you use your purchasing power to influence change in the supply chain?
- Science-based targets: Scope 3 emissions
- Decarbonising the supply chain in the Food & Drink Sector
- Tackling Scope 3 emissions in the NHS
- Sustainability & supply chain transparency
- Consistent measurement of Scope 3 carbon emissions for the FM sector
*** Increasing resilience in your organisation
While business efforts to date have focused on mitigation – and rightly so – corporate adaptation and resilience strategies will become increasingly commonplace and increasingly vital.
*** Creating value
3. Retrofitting to decarbonise the built environment
Together, building and construction are responsible for about 40% of all carbon emissions in the world with operational emissions (from energy used to heat, cool and light buildings) accounting for 28%. The remaining 12% comes from embodied carbon emissions or upfront carbon that is associated with materials and construction processes throughout the whole building lifecycle.
Hence why investing in low carbon retrofit solutions should be an immediate priority. The UK is where innovative solutions are currently deployed to make one of the oldest building stock in the world fits for the Net Zero future.
- Chruch of England – Decarbonising historic and listed buildings
- Decarbonisation of historic higher education estates
- Reducing the King’s Cross Estate carbon footprint, from energy supply, to tenant demand in a joined-up approach
- Decarbonising heating and cooling in University Campuses
- Entopia Building: a world-leading refurbishment and retrofit project
- How lockdown has changed our understanding in Energy Management for buildings
- Transitioning to Net Zero infrastructure
4. Green Electrification
*** Making the Switch to Electric Vehicles
With transport generating the largest volume of CO2 in the UK, at about 30% of the UK’s CO2 emissions, transitioning to a zero-emission fleet is the obvious place to start. What are the key considerations when planning EV charging infrastructure? What are the challenges lying ahead and how to overcome them?
- Mitie, DPD Group and National Grid to share practical learnings from their large scale EV deployments
- Simplifying EV charging payments for fleets
- Making sense of charging infrastructure and financing
*** Installing Battery Storage
Installation of Battery storage systems paired with solar and wind turbines are emerging as one of the key solutions to provide reliable and cheaper electricity. Demand Side Response (DSR) and battery storage are also creating exciting opportunities for organisations to unlock value from their spare energy capacity.
- The future economics of battery installations
- Flexibility market participation: return on experience
- Mitigating the impact of TCR through solar and storage
5. Leading people through change
Action from consumers, workers, households, leaders, businesses and citizens is needed in order to reach the target.
- Net Zero, Business Leaders and Consumers Trends
- Building Skills, Creating a Net Zero Ready Workforce
- Energy Managers for the future
We look forward to connecting with you at EMEX on 24 and 25 November in London where the above-mentioned topics and many others will be addressed, and the latest energy efficient products and services will be showcased.
