Spotlight session: Stand and deliver a net zero transition.

Drawing on extensive experience from working with leading organisations in the real estate, retail and manufacturing sectors, Dave provides top tips for getting things moving quickly and examples of how businesses have used their transition plan to leverage action.

The presentation covers:

Three Key ingredients of a successful Implementation plan:

  1. Data - The importance of data quality and the risks of using estimations.
  2. People - How to build knowledge capacity across the business to ensure that all areas of a business plays their part to achieve a successful net zero transition. How the backing of senior leadership can make a great difference, and the need to balance ambition with achievability.
  3. Projects - How early action can have great benefits and how to achieve the greatest cumulative savings by the target date. Dave highlights some useful tools in particular the RTC heat pump feasibility tool and Marginal abatement cost (MAC) curves.

Key Take-away points:

  • Good and complete data is the foundation of a successful net zero strategy. There should be clear KPI's for data quality and completeness.
  • Everyone can contribute to a successful transition to net zero. Make sure everyone understands what role they can play.
  • Focus on the journey rather than the destination to achieve the greatest cumulative benefits that you can.
