The East of England has a unique set of environmental opportunities and challenges. Our region produces half of the UK’s offshore wind energy and has plans to do much more. However, the East of England is the most susceptible region in the country to the impacts of climate change including coastal erosion and drought. Furthermore, car ownership levels are extremely high due, largely, to our region’s rurality. This has a massive impact on carbon emissions.
At the 2023 East of England Net Zero Conference, partners from the public and private sector, will come together to explore the following themes:
- Achieving investment to deliver net zero ambitions
- Innovative net zero solutions
- Breaking the barriers to net zero
- Behaviour change
- Transport decarbonisation – with a focus on:
- Rural transport
- Freight and logistics
Delegates will have the opportunity to hear from influential speakers and discuss issues in detail in breakout room discussions.
Agenda to follow shortly.
Audience: Ministers and MPs, Councillors and council officers, private sector and industry partners in the East of England.
