edie has launched a new report that acts as a business blueprint of key considerations for the UK private sector to assist with efforts to reach net-zero carbon emissions. We know the net-zero carbon future we want to achieve. But how are we going to achieve it? Inspired by edie’s award-winning Mission Possible campaign, this Net-Zero Carbon Playbook inspires and empowers businesses to ramp up efforts across all areas of sustainable development to achieve net-zero. Produced in association with Centrica Business Solutions and featuring input from The Climate Group and edie’s Countdown to COP26 Festival partner O2, the report provides this unique insight and inspiration through the lens of five interconnected pillars related to the future of sustainable business: Energy, Resources, Mobility, The Built Environment, and Business Leadership. The document provides a net-zero carbon progress report across all of these areas; empowering businesses to take specific actions to accelerate that progress themselves.
