Net Zero: Making Essex Carbon Neutral

Tuesday, 20 July, 2021 - 16:00 to 17:15
Virtual event

The Essex Climate Action Commission is launching its report at this online event to mark the end of its first year advising Essex on how best to reach net zero.

Since it was established and met for the first time in May 2020, the Commission has been discussing what action it recommends the county of Essex should take in order to tackle climate change. This event will launch the report which will reveal the Commission’s key recommendations on a number of key themes:

  • Transport
  • The Built Environment
  • Energy and Waste
  • Land Use and Green Infrastructure
  • Community Engagement

We all have a role to play in taking action on climate change – join us at this event to hear the Essex Climate Action Commission’s views on how working together now, we can secure a brighter, greener future for the people of Essex.

Why attend?

Delegates will learn how best the Essex Climate Action Commission recommends Essex transforms itself into a net zero county as quickly as possible. Innovative ways in which we can take action now to minimise the impact of climate change will be revealed.

Extensive research on what Essex residents think, as well as a public consultation, will also be revealed during the event.

Delegates will also have the option to network with over 30 Commissioners as well as fellow delegates both before and after the main event.
