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.

*** 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?

*** 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.

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?

*** 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.

5. Leading people through change

Action from consumers, workers, households, leaders, businesses and citizens is needed in order to reach the target.

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.
