Net zero action planning – how can local authorities turn ambition into action and stimulate green recovery and regeneration?

11 Mar 2021

10:00am - 12:00pm


We know that more than half of local authorities in the North East, Yorkshire and northern Lincolnshire are planning to achieve net zero between 2030-2045. Ambition has been bubbling around the region for some time now - and now that ambition is turning into clear and defined action planning.

But what are the practical next steps each of us is taking? What collaboration is needed? We're want to hear how your plans are developing and how we can support you.

Join us at our next Local Authority Forum to discuss how we can get on with the job of delivering net zero for our region.

At this forum:

  • Hear from your local authority peers about the actions they're taking.
  • Tell us what we can do to support your net zero plans.
  • Debate the top topics of the day – from green recovery to net zero regeneration.

The forum will kick off with an overview of what makes for effective net zero action planning. We'll then focus in on local projects, hearing from those involved about how they're collaborating with partners to make the most of the economic and environmental opportunities, before opening the floor to delegates during a live Q&A with our panel.

We'll examine Northern Powergrid's role in supporting and enabling local action, before we pass the microphone to you for a discussion on what we've heard and next steps.

To take part in these engaging peer-to-peer forums, register now.
