Logistics Sector Called on to Fight Climate Change

In this pivotal moment in the fight against climate change, decision-makers in Transport and Logistics sector are being called on to attend the forthcoming Net Zero Festival, an event which will give them the inspiration and cutting-edge advice they need to develop and advance their own net zero transition strategies.

Running from 29th September – 1st October, BusinessGreen’s Net Zero Festival, the world’s leading net zero focused event, will bring together many of the world’s top climate experts and inspiring business leaders to offer an exciting forum in which to explore the net zero transition’s immense challenges and opportunities for transport and logistics. Through exclusive announcements, original content, expert commentary and the showcasing of the world’s most successful strategies and innovations, the event will throw a spotlight on the global green industrial revolution.

“Getting to net zero is a critical goal in addressing the climate crisis; that’s why I’m so pleased to be speaking at this year’s Net Zero Festival. This is a pivotal moment in the climate action movement and the effort to move toward net zero carbon emissions. We can’t allow ourselves to be distracted and dissuaded by polluters and climate inactivists. That’s the take-home message of my book and my presentation,” said Michael Mann, renowned climate scientist.

In its second year, the annual festival comes at an opportune time, with the UK set to host the critical COP26 Climate Summit this November and thousands of companies now committed to delivering net zero emissions. Free event passes are being offered* to give as many business leaders and sustainability practitioners as possible the tools they need to join the global effort to avert a climate catastrophe.

Inspirational keynote speakers will include former Energy and Climate Change Secretary Amber Rudd, NatWest chief executive Alison Rose, Solar Impulse founder Bertrand Piccard, MP & President for COP26, The Rt Hon Alok Sharma and Sir David King, Emeritus Professor of Chemistry – University of Cambridge. They will be joined by a number of other green business experts and sustainability pioneers including former Marks and Spencer’s sustainable business director Mike Barry, Steve Murrells, CEO – The Co-operative Group, Raymond Blanc, Chef Patron – Le Manoir aux Quat’ Saisons and Viki Cooke, Co-Founder & Joint Chair – BritainThinks.

Across three days of speeches, workshops and panel events, the speakers will explore key topics and themes shaping the net zero transition; from net zero investment, to public engagement and the need for a just transition. There will also be fringe events and digital content from a raft of partners.

The free passes to the Net Zero Festival have been made possible by the support of its partners: Atkins, BCG, Schroders, Bank of America, Derwent London, Drax, Energy Saving Trust, Engie, GSK, Midrex, Tetra Pak, The Climate Pledge, Volvo and Kingspan.
