Forging Net Zero urgency: providing strategies and solutions

LGC Net Zero

Thursday 20 June, Factory Works, Birmingham

On Thursday 20 June LGC presented its inaugural in-person Net Zero conference in 2024, providing an excellent opportunity to explore innovative solutions to the most pressing challenges hindering local government from achieving Net Zero targets.

This event's key draw is its openness, offering a platform for those leading the drive to Net Zero within councils to come together to discuss challenges and share solutions. 

Given the severe issues and pressures faced by many councils, the pursuit of Net Zero targets has become more critical than ever. This urgency requires council leaders and climate change officers to convene in person, address key challenges, network, and discover viable solutions.
