The UK Government has committed to achieving Net Zero by 2050. The realisation of this goal falls in large part to local government. Most councils in the UK have declared a climate emergency and are already experiencing the disastrous impact of climate change. However, due to their constrained budgets, they often lack the resources necessary to making their Net Zero goals a reality.

“We are on the way to climate hell,” warned UN secretary-general António Guterres at COP27.  Despite all crises, councils must come together and pool their knowledge, build networks, and share best practice to preserve the hope of a sustainable future. We’re only Net Zero if we are all Net Zero. 

The voice of local government management since 1855, LGC’s position allows us to create a platform required to tackle an issue of this complexity. To demonstrate our commitment, in 2023, we will be evolving our previous Net Zero conference into a year-long cycle of events; expanding the previous virtual conference with two webinars and a face-to-face meetup, providing content throughout the year.

The LGC Net Zero Series 2023 is the premier gathering of local government professionals implementing sustainability. Join us to connect with your peers, discuss challenges you face, and observe valuable, successful case studies of Net Zero policy implementation.
