Net Zero 1 - Getting started on the net zero action plan journey - 15 September 2022

Live on TEAMS on 15 September 2022

Fee = £85.00 plus VAT or 1 credit

The declaration of a climate emergency is the beginning of a journey to net zero. This webinar gives an overview of that journey – understanding baseline emissions, developing net zero pathways, drawing up a net zero action plan or roadmap and implementing it. It then focuses in detail on the first step – understanding your baseline emissions. This will give a background to the annual local authority CO2 emissions data that Ricardo compiles for BEIS (and that will be further expanded in the next annual release to include other greenhouse gases), other data sources that can be used to supplement this, typical data challenges at a local level and possible solutions.

Air Quality and Climate Change co-benefits - 19 September 2022

This is a pre-recorded mini-webinar available from 19 September 2022 until 31 March 2023.

Fee = £65.00 plus VAT or 1 credit

Poor air quality and climate change share many of the same causes, and most of the actions taken to address climate change also come with the co-benefit of an improvement in air quality. These links mean that Local Authorities can look to implement policy measures that target the sources of both greenhouse gases and air pollutant emissions. This webinar will examine the links between air quality and climate change, and provide guidance on aligning air quality plans and climate plans so that they work together effectively, maximising the benefits across both areas.

Net Zero 2 - Developing your action plan - 26 September 2022

Live on TEAMS on 26 September 2022

Fee = £85.00 plus VAT or 1 credit

Once a clear picture is available of current GHG emissions, the next step on the net zero journey is to develop an action plan. This webinar looks at issues around modelling net zero pathways, why it’s important, what to look out for and some handy tips. It then considers what makes a good action plan and how it can be developed, including feedback on our experience with community engagement on net zero.

Net Zero 3 - Operationalising your net zero action plan - 13 October 2022

Live on TEAMS on 13 October 2022

Fee = £85.00 plus VAT or 1 credit

The next step in the net zero journey is to operationalise the net zero action plan that has been developed. This webinar aims to share experiences on how this can be achieved, with examples from different local authorities. Sometimes a net zero action plan can feel like a huge list of urgent things that need to be done, especially for those authorities that are aiming to achieve net zero before 2050. How can local authorities prioritise and decide where to focus their efforts? How can they best facilitate and mobilise action from other stakeholders? What opportunities are there for learning from each other? All of this, and more, will be discussed in this webinar.
